Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It seems to suggest that there isn't and simply cannot be any conceivable higher priority than that of maintaining the Euro.

It's not a priority, it's a reality. Germany will continue to have a currency, and that currency will continue to behave as the euro does, and be governed like the DM and the euro have been for the past 60 years - by inflation hawks (or gold bugs, if you prefer). Various countries nearby will continue to use the same currency. France will likely stick around.

That's a reality - that currency (with or without France, euro or new-DM) will exist. Its not a priority, or a statement of desires or wishes, it's a fact.

That such a fact is incompatible with the EU as it currently is built is a possibility, hich means that the EU cannot continue as it is built.
