Prime Minister David Cameron has warned that it would be "very bad" for the UK if the eurozone was to break up.

Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, he said the debt crisis in the eurozone was "a threat not just to itself, but also a threat to the UK economy, and a threat to the world economy".

He reiterated that eurozone leaders had to take quick and decisive action.

Mr Cameron said that, as 40% of UK exports went to the eurozone, it could not shield itself from the problem.

The prime minister said the UK government had "a very clear view" of what needed to be done, and that it was pushing this with its partners in Europe and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

So what are their choices? Either Germany is going to have to insure Blacklava bonds, or they are going to have to break apart.... I don't think Germany is too happy with having to pay for whatever the greeks decide to spend money on that morning.

Today's headline could read:

"Germans Thrown Under Bus Again, Germans Understandably Flustered Again."
