This would never happen if it was France or Germany in violation.
France and Germany have both been in violation (skipped out, claiming the accounting was in error), which is why Greece has been given so much slack year after year. All this falls under the "we can't possibly keep our timetable if we have to stop and pick up passengers" Euro-rule. :')
France and Germany are BOTH in violation. If I were any of the smaller countries, I would demand that they be fined first. After all, they have been in breach for about two years now.
