Brendan Keenan: Kicking the can too far could hurl eurozone over the cliff

YOU will have the advantage of me when you read this. You will know what EU leaders decided at yesterday's summit whereas, at the time of writing, I do not.

Still, I would wager that the term, "kicking the can down the road," will make several more appearances in discussions of what went on.

Never miss the chance to work a cliché. The thing about kicking a can down the road is that, the further one goes, the more impossible becomes the task of kicking it back up again. One must keep kicking until one runs out of road, or pick up the can. Or abandon it altogether.
