Now that the brief distraction of the Greek elections is past, I presume we are getting back on track with Der Masterplan.
This plan has been in place for many years now and is pretty obvious to anyone with more than a pair of braincells [and excluding 60.3% of the Irish].
The original plan was that all European countries would sign up to the Euro. They did quite well there with most signing on the dotted line. They knew damn well that the currency would fail, and in fact this was all part of Der Plan. The intention was to engineer a collapse in order to push the next phase.
The next phase of course was to use the collapse to convince Europeans that the only way out was full financial unity. In other words, Brussels would have full and complete financial control over the entire Eurozone.
Things didn’t quite go to plan however as the collapse was sooner and far worse than intended which gave Brussels a bit of a headache. Their only course of action was to push for unity as a matter of extreme urgency before the Euro failed.
Their problem now is to move fast while not panicking the population. Move too quickly and people will get suspicious. Move too slowly and the currency collapses altogether.
There have been a few discreet mentions of Fiscal Unity, but now they are being more brazen and open about it. There is now talk of yet another referendum. Today I see that the subject has been broached at the G20 meeting where “Angela Merkel, who as the leader of Europe’s biggest economy is under intense pressure to move faster on deeper financial and fiscal union in the eurozone”
My bet is that we will hear a lot more about “Fiscal Unity” in the coming days and weeks. Before we know where we are, they will be putting it before us as the only option to solve the Euro crisis. We will hear how “there is no other option” and failure to agree will lead to “empty ATMs” and “nurses not being paid”. The usual shite, in other words.
Once that has been passed?
Welcome to The United[?] States of Europe.
