I Never Ask for an Explanation of Past Positions

Especially when it comes to the basic practice of European humiliation politics:
Germany and Italy undermine French bid for financial tax

German and Italian leaders at a meeting in Berlin said they would only back a financial transactions tax at the level of the EU-27, not just the eurozone-17, dampening France's campaign for the levy. Merkel said her earlier comment on Monday backing a eurozone-17 tax was a "personal opinion" only.
So if we use the EUvian attitude toward Britain as an example, aren’t Germany and Italy isolating themselves”? Seriously, where are the comparisons to the sinking of the Titanic here?
