Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Display:
Europe might possibly be saved if the euro is trashed, Maastricht is rewritten, or the ECB were made transparent.
Unlike LePen, 5*MV is willing to threaten a referendum to exit the currency_in order to reform it -and junk austerity-_
And only if that doesn't make Germany rethink its beggar-my-neighbour attitude, then -and only then- stage 2, Italexit.
What Trump's doing is accelerating the EU's demise, as the quality of leadership, and the revolving door between lobbyists and parliamentarians have made the EU's unsustainability -as is- inevitable.
In some ways the sooner this happens the sooner we can build version 2.0, with the necessary precautions baked in to avoid the problems we suffer from currently.
Right now it's a logjam.
