Go to above link see 18 August story -Economic Goverment would intergrate Europe to a degree not seen since the Roman Empire
I think many posters on newspaper web sites are engaging in wishfull thinking -the peripheral euro zone debt crisis will not mean the demise of the Euro . As the free business paper City AM 19/07 has it -"Markets see fiscal union as the solution." In other words Sovereign debt will erode remaining sovereignty.As the EU will move towards a Federal Bank and Federal tax collection.
Who imagined in the 1970 s the fall of the Soviet Empire and countries such as Poland becoming EU members . Watch for Turkey(The Eastern Roman Empire) to be integrated by stealth into the EU. Wonder if a soon independent Scotland will leave as, unlike Ireland, it was not part of the original Roman Empire?
