Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can certainly understand the lure of making a tactical alliance with RW loons in order to force a change in the Euro. But for it to be worth it it has to succeed, and that seems unlikely. Then there must be a careful evaluation of the consequences. If it results in a voting majority for RW loons then any fix will be fatally compromised, making the whole situation possibly worse. There are real dangers in a 'the worse, the better' philosophy. But the European status quo regarding the Euro seems little better than a crypto-fascist cabal as it is.
