I've said this about a hundred times in all sorts of threads...ok, so what's another one hundred and first time:
No, it will not split the EU, why should it...and even if so, I don't actually understand the list of countries that was mentioned:
(ATTENTION I GETTING A LITTLE BIT SARCASTIC NOW!!!)
Portugal and Spain to split away from Germany...very well, I'd love that. Germany could lower its payments so much, there would be room for a tax cut...wow!!! Wouldn't we all love that?? And as our favorite holiday resort...well I guess they'd still have the hots for our money, so no disadvantages there.
The same goes for Greece and Italy, especially the latter one...remember, little Berlusconi is a little napoleon, desperately wanting to be with the big boys. When money comes into the game, he's a good European boy again.
Ireland..how did you come up with that one?? In matters of Europe Ireland is one of Germany's closest ally, always has been, and in this so-called Iraq crisis, not one bad word has been said between those two countries!!
Scandinavia...at the worst they stay a bit more on the neutral side, as a North countries block, sort of.
And the new members to be? If they decide to be Bush's new pet dogs...BE MY
GUEST!!! Even less payments for Germany, and that is exactly what the German economy needs right now!!
So where does that leave you? I'm not so sure about UK, looking at the damage Tony Blair is currently doing to his Labour party.
EU split-up?? No way, that's what the US hawks would just love, as they just hate the idea of another strong economic block beside the USA...except they won't be able to keep this from happening!!
