This crisis of the Euro will be played out to the bitter end. This is because almost all the politicians, whether in government or in oppostion are in favour the common currency and/or the EU. How can this be otherwise? Even given the catastrophic finacial situation in Ireland the turkeys still voted for Christmas (http://www.independent.ie/national-news ... 12827.html
) and passed the finance bill that will enslave the people of Ireland. The one wavering voter got the call from Brussels and voted as directed. This has been the way every time in Ireland. Get the vote wrong and you vote again until you get it right. Serves them right that they are now enslaved by the EU. They had the chance to breakout and failed to take their chance. In so doing they condemned all of us. Even in Switzerland, Norway and Iceland the political elite wanted their people to join the EU!
We in the UK will not get this chance because our politicians are equally set in continuing with this project come what may. They were not obliged to contribute to the illegal bail outs, or to back the Irish, or increase the capital of the ECB. Labour or Condems they went willingly along with the rest. The Germans will also go along with it all. Merkle may not like it, but if she goes the socialists will take up the challenge. The Germans will not get the chance to vote on leaving the Euro or becoming the paymaster of Europe. Their politicians have decided for them already.
This will drag on for a long time, until perhaps things get so bad that we have civil unrest in Spain, Italy or Portugal. It will not end without bloodshed.
