European kissing:

New press chief reveals which cheek to kiss in Europe

As European Central Bank President Mario Draghi struggles to build bridges between quarreling Governing Council members, he soon will have a specialist in international kissing by his side.

The Saturday Quiz answers

1. Tax.

Battle of the bankers
<p><b><u>Jens Weidmann</b></u>
<br /><b>Who is he?</b> President of the Bundesbank, Germany's central bank, and former economics adviser to Chancellor Angela Merkel.
<br /><b>What does he want?</b> To keep the ECB on a firm leash and put a brake on anything that involves German taxpayers effectively handing over billions more to the Eurozone's spendthrift strugglers. Is opposed to the ECB buying sovereign bonds, as it breaches the central bank's mandate on not financing the debts of Eurozone nations.</p>
<p><b><u>Mario Draghi</b></u>
<br /><b>Who is he?</b> President of the European Central Bank, Italian but got the job because he was the most ‘German' candidate.
<br /><b>What does he want?</b> To preserve stable prices in the Eurozone and defend the “irreversible” single currency itself – within the limits allowed by the Bundesbank. Wants Europe to push ahead with the necessary budget cuts and institutional reforms needed bring the single currency bloc closer together and prevent another crisis.</P>
