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

That's because the Euro isn't a single currency - it's an excuse to force neo-liberal ideas about competition and 'reform' onto nation states.

It's a neo-liberal Trojan Horse - the exact opposite of the expression of pan-European popular solidarity it could have been, and some us (naively) hoped it would become.

The problem isn't the concept of a single currency, but the fact that its implementation was left to a nomenklatura of Wall St-inspired rapists and headbangers.

The latter are the problem, and progress will be impossible until they're swept from power.
