Is the U.K. the Next Greece?

A day after the EU has come to terms on a bailout to save Greece, this Bloomberg TV analysis is pretty interesting. First, they point out that the rates Greece got were still pretty punitive, despite the fact that they were below market rates. But even more interesting is the notion that the U.K., not Portugal, Spain, or Ireland, might be the next economy to be forced to the brink because they're not part of the Euro Zone and don't have the partners to bail them out.
