EU desperation in further drive to ruin nations.

EU leaders will this week seek to argue that further EU integration and an acceleration of the long held German led agenda for complete monetary and political Union is necessary to prevent further economic crisis. That the drive to such union through the single curency has been a huge contributory factor in the current crisis is conveniently forgotten. They will seek to cure the wound with salt. Herman van Rompuy the Council President is demanding that eurozone countries grant a European authority the power to demand changes to national budgets which do not meet EU debt and deficit rules. This is tantamount to putting the un elected finance markets in total control. Progressive people in Britain and Europe have always described the EU project as being like a rag bag of decrepit capitalists huddling together for warmth in their ailing dotage. No clearer illustration of this will be given than in the talks this week.
