“[Osborne] says there is a “remorseless logic” in the eurozone moving towards banking and fiscal union …”
Right. So, that’s the United States of Eurozone-Europe then.
Oh, and has anybody consulted the Eurozone’s 332 million citizens about Mr Osborne’s “remorseless logic”?
Or does “remorseless logic” take precedence over European suffrage?
What the hell’s going on here?
Maybe I’ve got this wrong, but can somebody tell me if the Eurozone’s 332 million citizens are gagging for the “remorseless logic” of fiscal union?
You know, that’s where the President of the United States of Eurozone-Europe signs-off on how much, say, (the subservient state of) France can spend on its health services; or how much (the subservient state of) Portugal can spend on defence; or how much tax should be raised from the citizens of (the subservient state of) Spain; or what is an acceptable public sector deficit and borrowing requirement for (the subservient state of) Austria?
Is it me going mad, or are the politicos becoming more deranged with each passing day? Does Osborne actually know what he’s talking about (maybe he should just stick to taxing hot pasties?). I’m sensing growing collective political insanity here which is deeply troubling.
Idea: Jose Manuel Barroso is currently President of the European Commission. He’s also an ex-member of the Portugese Workers’ Communist Party. Perhaps Barroso should put himself up for election to the office of President of the United States of Eurozone-Europe? Utopia would follow shortly after. The logic is remorseless.
PS If the citizens of Eurozone-Europe didn’t elect Barroso as President, they could hold the elections again (and again, and again) until they did elect him.
