OH FOR A BERLIN WALL MOMENT


Anybody else notice the transition these days from a group of bankers, bureaucrats and politicians grappling (and largely failing) with an intractable economic crisis, to something more sinister?

We’re reading now that despite the virtual inevitability of a disorderly  financial collapse of the euro currency, and quite possibly an existential threat to the European Union itself, the triumvirate mafia I mentioned above (the bankers, bureaucrats and politicians) is now opening the throttle towards the creation of a superstate.

What’s more, the initiative has been placed with the bankers and the bureaucrats to develop a top-down “solution”.  Financiers and apparatchiks are being asked (told by a German) to propose the future organisation of the European continent.

No mention of a surge in popular support throughout the nations of Europe for the creation of a superstate.  Hardly, because there is no such support.  So, no mandate whatsoever then for the apparatchiks to develop the blueprint for a European superstate; just instructions from a German politician.

Why is our own British political class going along with all of this?  It’s an almost unbelievable affront to democracy.

As the triumvirate mafia goes about its sinister business, almost wholly detached from the needs and wishes of Europe’s citizens (who seem to be largely comatose for the time being), all we can do at the moment is hope to goodness for 3 things to happen: that the markets will triumph over political dementedness and bring down the unworkable and unsustainable currency union that is the euro; that a critical mass of citizens in each of the European nations will wake up to the fact that they now risk being herded in to the mother-of-all cattle wagons; and that the complex dictatorship that is the European Union itself will be forced into collapse.

PS Just looking at the bulletins rolling in on the Daily Telegraphs Debt Crisis: Live website and elsewhere (like Reuters, Zero Hedge etc) one gets the impression of a crisis evolving inexorably towards chaos. It’s heartening to think that the politicians and the bureaucrats could well be losing control quicker than they and we think … oh for a Berlin Wall moment, eh?
