Auf Wiedersehen

Posted: December 10, 2011 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah

This looks pretty huge to me, think of it as an addendum to Mitchell’s comment from the other day.

The Brits are telling the EUnuchs to sod off while the EUnuchs are trying to act as if they’re the ones who who broke up.

In an effort to stabilise the euro zone, France, Germany and 21 other countries have decided to draft their own treaty to impose more central control over national budgets. Britain and three others have decided to stay out. In the coming weeks, Britain may find itself even more isolated. Sweden, the Czech Republic and Hungary want time to consult their parliaments and political parties before deciding on whether to join the new union-within-the-union.

Get it? Britain is going to be “even more isolated” because they refuse to cede even more power to the EUnuchs.Yeah, just like we’ve been “pretty isolated” since we kicked the Brits out.

This also looks bad for certain countries as their economic decisions are made in Brussels. Since pretty much everything boils down to economic decisions, this will be unelected bureaucrats deciding everything for other nations.

Greece doesn’t want to leave the EU much as Occutards don’t want to leave their parents’ basements.

But the flip side is “If you’re living in my house you’ll live by my rules”, but how are they going to force Greece, Italy and Spain to do what they want?

I’m even on the side of Germany and France, if those chumps want to get largesse from their more responsible neighbors, they’re going to have to suck it up and be told what to do.

Confronted by the financial crisis, the euro zone is having to integrate more deeply, with a consequent loss of national sovereignty to the EU (or some other central co-ordinating body); Britain, which had secured a formal opt-out from the euro, has decided to let them go their way.

Good for them.  Britain might be boned, but not much more than any EUnuchstanian nation and a lot less than quite  a few. They don’t need German credit the way Greece does.

One thing,

President Nicolas Sarkozy had long favoured the creation of a smaller, “core” euro zone, without the awkward British, Scandinavians and eastern Europeans that generally pursue more liberal, market-oriented policies. And he has wanted the core run on an inter-governmental basis, ie by leaders rather than by supranational European institutions.

France thinks they’re going to take over large swathes of EUnuchstan, methinks the Germans might have other ideas.

Should be interesting if nothing else.

    This is absolutely the smartest move the Brits could make. The Mediterranean countries are going to drag down the whole thing in less than 10 years.

    And the Holy Roman Empire is reborn without so much as a hiccup. Can’t wait for the reboot of the 100 Years War with France to start back up when the Emperor Germans want France to recognize who the real HMFIC is.

    — you mean sort of like the original Common Market?

    When all hope of avoidance is lost and as strong countries are dragged down by the weaker, and war breaks out in Europe, as it is bound to do when certain strong countries take it upon themselves to ensure that the dictates of the EU are actually enforced, the questions will be “Who against who?”, “What unseen alliances will form?”, and “What is the endgame exit-strategy?”

    And hovering over every last one of the details of those questions will be the question: How does the US get dragged in, and what bedfellows will we have?

    For all of their superiority and enlightened thoughts, Europe has this way of involving the world in it’s squabbles.
