Debt crisis: Crushed

Crushed – Berend Vonk
Trouw (Amsterdam)

Oh, you get used to it.

After Greece (and Ireland and Portugal), Spain is preparing to seek help from the EU to face its financial difficulties. On 1 October, European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Olli Rehn said the European Commission "stands ready" in case Madrid, under pressure from the markets and some of its European partners, seeks a bailout. The Spanish Government has not yet made a decision, fearing the strict conditions which may be imposed by Brussels in exchange.
