Melanie Phillips on the coming death of the “anti-democratic…EU superstate”:
… They were warned, of course, when the Euro was introduced that its inherent incoherence as the purported ‘common’ currency of wildly different economies would eventually bring it down, along with the EU project itself and the economies that so rashly tied themselves to it.
It’s not actually Europe that would fail. The countries sharing the continent of Europe could continue very happily to trade and ally with each other. What might now fail is the hubristic and anti-democratic project for an EU superstate, hoist by its own monetary petard.
Bring it on.
