Dijsselbloem will be shuffled out with new government

Dijsselbloem's party won the most seats in the Dutch election but he has indicated that in all the horse-trading of a new coalition, he will be left out.

Perhaps more importantly, he said he wouldn't speculate on what that means as his future of the head of the eurogroup. But the institution is for finance ministers so draw your own conclusions.

 

I never liked Dijsselbloem anyway, but that's almost entirely because his name is a pain in the ass to spell. That said, the other leaders in Europe like him so I think he will bounce back in one way or another.

He's also talking about Greece in what sounds like some kind of swan song.
