    British embassies in the eurozone have been told to draw up plans to help British expats through the collapse of the single currency, amid new fears for Italy and Spain.
    By James Kirkup, Deputy Political Editor10:00PM GMT 25 Nov 2011
    As the Italian government struggled to borrow and Spain considered seeking an international bail-out, British ministers privately warned that the break-up of the euro, once almost unthinkable, is now increasingly plausible.
    Diplomats are preparing to help Britons abroad through a banking collapse and even riots arising from the debt crisis.
    The Treasury confirmed earlier this month that contingency planning for a collapse is now under way.
    A senior minister has now revealed the extent of the Government’s concern, saying that Britain is now planning on the basis that a euro collapse is now just a matter of time.
    “It’s in our interests that they keep playing for time because that gives us more time to prepare,” the minister told the Daily Telegraph.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm in the group that thinks it's only a matter of time. I will be overdosing on popcorn.

    Can you still load them all on ships and send them to Australia?

    I'd dump them off in Somalia. Let them learn what real hardship is like.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
