A GOOD QUESTION: If the Foreign Office is preparing for a eurozone crash, why isn’t it warning British citizens travelling abroad? “There is a real problem here – any such official warning would trigger panic and make the eurozone’s horrible problems even worse.”

Jim Bennett emails: “When are they going to start acting like it’s a crisis? Every Brit expat in southern Spain will be trying to get to Gibraltar where their ATM cards will still work, if the Spanish ones stop working, for example. Maybe they need more border agents and guards pre-positioned to deal with the crowds. That’s one example, I’m sure there are many more.”
