If Germany leaves the Euro, Austria, the Netherlands, Finland und Luxemburg will leave the Euro-Zone, too. There will be no Euro without Germany.
“If the euro fails, europe fails”.
With leaders like these it’s no wonder we’re in a mess. Nearly half the EU is not even IN the bloody euro. Switzerland is not even in the EU. Other countries in Scandinavia have associate membership – all the benefits and none of the disadvantages. Are all these states “failing”?
Making one’s blood boil isn’t in it. These people are pratts, but extremely dangerous as they have power.
Ireland? It seems to me they would be better off out of the euro or even the EU. They regain control of their economy to mess up the way they want, or to put it right – THEIR DECISION. As it stands, trying to keep up with Germany is going to bring misery FOR YEARS. AND THIS PATCHING UP WILL NOT WORK. IT DOES NOT SOLVE THE UNDERLYING PROBLEMS ……
WHO believes they will EVER be able to repay their debt? Greece is in an even WORSE situation. And on top of all this is the imminent collapse of the American economy, possibly hastened by a new Korean War and/or any number of disastrous actions that China might take.
Merkel is not the Bismarck or the Churchill who is going to save Europe from all this shambles. But PLEASE DON’T BLAME OTHER PEOPLE. IT IS OUR FAULT. (“our” = your government’s” of course)
