Big day in Europe

Major events in Europe today.

1.  The Netherlands general election.  Will the resulting coalition government be more euroskeptic than its predecessor?

2. German Federal Constitutional Court.  As I surmised yesterday, the court has not sunk the ESM, but it has shot a warning shot across the bows which may inhibit the ESM's effectiveness.

3. Barroso's 'state of the union' speech, calling not for an EU superstate but a federation of states..

4.The Brussels push to control banks.

5. Scotland as an independent nation would have to apply to join the EU?  Alex Salmond must be livid.

5. Bungling Ashton.
