German MPs resent haste to rush an agreement for Euro

Open Europe's daily press briefing, has the following, hugely significant quote, illustrating how far the EU has already departed from democratic norms:

 FAZ reports that all parties in the Bundestag have complained about the "extreme time pressure" they are under to make choices on the future of the eurozone’s rescue fund, the EFSF, with Merkel possibly forced to travel to Sunday’s summit without a clear mandate. SPD MP Thomas Oppermann criticised the process saying, “The planned course of action running up to the EU-summit on Sunday has by no means been deemed appropriate by parliament. In a democracy, you cannot treat a parliament like this”.
