A referendum for Germany?

Tue, Jun 19, 2012, 01:00

Sir, – I am afraid that Fergal Dalton’s hopes (June 16th) for a referendum in Germany on joint Euro-bonds or deposit-guarantee schemes belies an ignorance on the constitutional ban on referendums in Germany because of the unfortunate consequences that flowed from Germans’ experience of them in the past. – Yours, etc,
