The mood turns apocalyptic
Is the European Union finally waking up to the scale of the political and economic challenges it faces? Last week, at a seminar in Brussels led by Notre Europe, a think-tank, the apocalyptic mood, even among government officials who normally let their political masters do the talking in public, was unmistakeable.
With the financial crisis in Greece exploding all over the European media, Michael Claus, a director-general for European affairs at Germany’s foreign ministry, spoke bluntly. For the European Union in the next 18 months, “the top priority will be to save the euro”, he said.
The leaders at the Brussels summit this week may yet come up with a plan to save the euro. I am not sure they know how to save Europe.
