Elizabeth Fournier
THIS week we’re asking members of our Voice of the City / panel for their opinion on Standard & Poor’s shock decision to put the ratings of 15 countries, including Germany and France, on review late on Monday.

Was S&P right to act when it did, and do you see any link between the announcement of the latest euro rescue measures, and the timing of the rating agency’s announcement?
