Britain will be blamed for the imminent Euro breakdown–that is its pre-determined role.
Never mind the billions of pounds sterling thrown towards saving the Euro!
Never mind our abandoned Commonwealth allies and friends.
Never mind our destroyed manufacturing base and international third world trading contacts! Britain is to be cast as the villain in the collapse of the Euro. Watch, wait and see!
The following quote comes from an interview former German Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder gave to Der Spiegel over the past weekend, the second portion of which was titled “Great Britain is causing the greatest problem” it is linked here :
Schröder:….And the real problems aren’t even coming from these new member states.
SPIEGEL: Then where are they coming from?
Schröder: Great Britain is causing the biggest problem. Great Britain is not part of the euro, and yet the British always want to have their say in the design of an economic zone. This is inconsistent. And besides, the British have been very skeptical about every integration step, and that’s putting it very diplomatically.
SPIEGEL: In reality they’ve been obstructionists?
Schröder: Yes. I was originally of the opinion that Great Britain could be treated like France. But what was overlooked, also by myself, is that Great Britain still sees itself in a sort of middle position between the United States on one side and Europe on the other. In other words, it’s in an "in-between" position. And that is unacceptable.
SPIEGEL: But if nothing works with Great Britain, what role can the British play in the future?
Schröder: The decision on the concrete configuration of the economic government can only be made by members in the euro zone, and not by the Council (the powerful EU institution comprised of European national leaders) as a whole.
