Merkel pressed to handle EU financial crisis

Opposition says chancellor is risking the country's stable economy at the expense of the Eurozone.

    The German chancellor Angela Merkel is coming under criticism for not providing more leadership during the Eurozone financial crisis.

    Germany pays the lion’s share of bailout money – some 30% under European Union rules but most people there seemed resigned to simply being Europe’s paymaster.

    The opposition says an increase on taxes may stand the country in good stead later.
