While they're continuing to hammer out the details of this new -- if you wanna call it that Diane in fact a German Chancellor Angela Merkel is holding a press briefing right now and among her comment she said that.
The European Union has learned from its mistakes it is.
Moving towards stability union and also she says we should use this crisis as an opportunity for a new stopped so we revenue -- on the table.
One that -- is 26 of the 27 country say they could slide 23 for sure.
Three other countries hungry -- Czech Republic say we're gonna take -- while opponents just one country.
In the early houses this morning said we just cannot sign this deal of that is the UK Britain says -- It says it imposes new financial regulations that the country just cannot accept.
And that -- what are some of the stipulations that come as part of this plan I know these countries are -- -- A surrendering some of the power that they have over their fiscal policies can you sort of walk us through some of the main points.
Yeah well -- now being changed and addressed as we talk but to essentially they were at this new deal will provide for stricter enforcement of fiscal rules they'll also say that.
If someone violates those rules that will be automatic sanctions against those countries and over a span -- -- -- borrow.
It also calls for the -- Permanent bailout fund which is the our European stability mechanism.
To be board up and put in place by next year that's a year ahead of time it would have a 500 billion Euro cap.

While it well you gonna have the ins and the outs those that do signed this deal will have more influence over those countries that don't sign it don't forget the role in the European Union.
But -- someone like Britain if they do not join this agreement they will still be affected by decisions made buying.
The people in this new accords so it does have a big impact in fact of -- thing.
People assaying of Britain is now clearly on the sidelines it could old because it certainly -- -- business it could affect the decision making in the region but David Cameron Britain's prime minister says look.
