As Ireland continue to struggle financially and other European nations start to debate the benefits or not of a £70 Billion bailout, with some like Finland strongly opposing, the EU president is warning that the EU is in a “Survival Crisis”.

I don’t think that the EU faces a survival crisis, but the Euro as we know it probably does.

Because I don’t think Ireland is the end of the problems; I suspect Spain, Portugal and Italy are all heading the same way, and somehow I don’t think that the Key Euro Players (Germany and France) will really be up for so many bailouts.

So, just like Britain and the ERM, we will probably see Ireland and Portugal/Spain and maybe Italy forced out of the present Eurozone, to protect jobs and inflation in Germany and France.

Will the Euro crumble? Probably not but a core germanic, charlemange like empire of the Euro will continue.

And do you know the worst thing? British tax payers may end up picking up some of the bill whilst eurocrats try to save a currency that shouldn’t exist in the first place…..

    Good bye, good riddance. I always hated the Euro. It doesn’t make any sense how you can have a multitude of governing bodies with different tax systems, different economies sharing a single currency. Its a proposterous idea and will be a painful mistake for the Germans.
    If the PIGS states want to stay in the Euro, then they’ll have to let the Germans completely take over otherwise its only going to get worse.

    I think the problem for the Eurozone countries is clearly the obvious economic manipulators such as changing interest rates are denied a collection of countries in the Euro so they have to adopt a one size fits all approach. Invariably that will favour the Franco/German economies more than other smaller states.
