However, non-committal comments to date from French President Hollande and German Chancellor Merkel confirm that negotiations over the terms of the merger have now entered their most sensitive phase. Depending on how the negotiations go, the UK's coalition government may be confronted with a most unexpected and intriguing challenge: whether or not the government should acquire its own stake in the merged company.
