Not Exactly A Love Fest: European Headlines About The G20

Der Spiegel says Merkel
and Sarkozy are "getting everything they asked for."

 

Berlusconi says Italy will follow Germany and France's lead, an Italian news agency reports.

Summits are all about conspicuous
consumption--and even in the economic crisis, the G20, sadly, is no exception,
says the Times's Ben Macintyre.
  

Daily Mail says G20 protesters attacked police while they were trying to tend to a dying man.

A German political analyst tells the Moscow
Times
that Medvedev's visit to Berlin
before heading to London shows that
Russia and Germany
share "remarkable trust" and "well-coordinated positions."

A Prague
Post editorial
says the Czech Republic, currently head of the EU, should
blame itself for Obama stopping in its capitol for "courtesy calls"
only.

The Times asks, Did Michelle Obama break protocol by hugging the queen? (Her Majesty didn't flinch.)
