Greece Is The Word

The euro is falling apart because the Germans have been asked to bail out some or other member of the Club Med, at which point German public opinion has risen up and, as will very soon happen, destroyed the entire project.

Just as well that we stayed out of it. Good old Gordon Brown, Ed Miliband and Ed Balls. It would never have happened if Labour had not won the 1997 Election. Ken Clarke would have remained Chancellor and we'd have gone it at the start, as Blair also wanted us to do but could not get past those three.

But of course Blair wanted it, the linchpin of Eurofederalism generally. For Eurofederalism now stands exposed as the way of cuts, privatisation, and the destruction of workers' rights. Peter Shore, Douglas Jay, Tony Benn, Michael Foot, Barbara Castle and Judith Hart were right all along. As, in their own terms, were Tony Blair and the biggest Eurofederalist of the lot, Margaret Thatcher.

What a thing it is to have been right all along. But where do they find people so stupid that they cannot see these things from the start?
