It’s Christmas in Euroland

4 December 2011

It’s Christmas in Euroland

Are the fears of a coming depression or a populist backlash real, or are they being stoked up to make sure that the Eurocrats get their way? Is democracy at a national level really an obstacle to Euro-integration? Or is it more freedom and democracy, and demands for referenda that we should put our faith in, even if it might risk the breakup of the Eurozone? Might it be Europe’s only chance of avoiding a future in which nobody is pro-European?
