Moody's Cuts EU's Rating

Moody's has cut its outlook on the triple A rating of the European Union to negative.

The cut reflects the credit risks of the EU's key budget contributors.

Moody's is quoted by the Telegraph:
"The outlook change to negative reflects the negative outlooks now assigned to the Aaa sovereign ratings of key contributors to the EU budget: Germany, France, the UK and the Netherlands, which together account for around 45pc of the EU's budget revenue. 
Moody's believes that it is reasonable to assume that the EU's creditworthiness should move in line with the creditworthiness of its strongest key member states."
