43. Torygraph's Evans-pritchard is beside himself. EU "reduced to a shell" without UK!
Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 11:46 AM by Ghost Dog
(classic Fog in Channel: Continent Isolated case. I see little debate so far on the issue of financial system regulation in the anglo-saxon msm, just the typical pro-City spin). - and see DU here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

The leaders of France and Germany have more or less bulldozed Britain out of the European Union for the sake of a treaty that offers absolutely no solution to the crisis at hand, or indeed any future crisis. It is EU institutional chair shuffling at its worst, with venom for good measure.

It is risky to reach instant conclusions on a fast-moving story but it looks as if the EU may soon be reduced to a shell, with a new union forming among the core.

Much has been said about whether David Cameron handled this well or badly. I leave that debate to my colleagues. What strikes me as a former EU correspondent is how threatening this is to the EU Project itself...

... Did France and Germany really have to cause this rift by throwing in an assault on the City that has precious little do with the EMU crisis? Yes, I suppose they did...

Deregulation in the City has precious little to do with the crisis, huh. Everybody knows.
