As we all know by now, Beppe Grillo is making waves in the Boot of Eurotrashland threatening to leave the Euro and Reverse Engineer the Lira in Italy. Nigel Farage has of course been regularly hammering in the Eurotrash Parliament that the PIIGS need to leave the “Euro Straightjacket”.
Not to be outdone here on the “LEMME OUTTA THIS PLACE” meme, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard now reports the Krauts have formed a new Party around the idea THEY need to Jump the Euro Ship FIRST, and take all their Hun relatives with them. This would then leave the Latin bloc “free” to devalue the Euro. LOL.
A new party led by economists, jurists, and Christian Democrat rebels will kick off this week, calling for the break-up of monetary union before it can do any more damage.
“An end to this euro,” is the first line on the webpage of Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). “The introduction of the euro has proved to be a fatal mistake, that threatens the welfare of us all. The old parties are used up. They stubbornly refuse to admit their mistakes.”
They propose German withdrawl from EMU and return to the D-Mark, or a breakaway currency with the Dutch, Austrians, Finns, and like-minded nations. The French are not among them. The borders run along the ancient line of cleavage dividing Latins from Germanic tribes.
Paraphrasing the Alarm: “Give me Strength, Give me Hope, give me a Currency I can DEPEND on“. LOL.
All these solutions are utterly ludicrous of course. If the Ities bring back the Lira, it will Hyperinflate faster than you can say “Speedy Gonzalo Lira”. LOL. If the Krauts exit Euro Stage Left, the Euro will Hyperinflate faster than you can say John Williams Shadow Stats.
The ridiculous conceit the Krauts have here is that they figure if they leave the Euro first,the Latins will KEEP USING IT and PAY THEIR DEBTS in this Fictitious Abortion of a Currency. WTF would they BOTHER? It’s WORTHLESS!
What is quite apparent though is the Brussels Clowns are OUTTA GIMMICKS. This sucker is DEAD, EVERYBODY KNOWS! Now all they are doing is trying to figure out how to jump off the sinking Titanic.
What is truly appalling is that NOBODY from ANY political party addresses the Elephant in the Room, the increasing Energy costs to maintain the Industrial lifestyle. The Greens don’t do it, the Grillini don’t either. It’s all just a Monetary Problem. Print your own Toilet Paper, problem solved! NOT.
This looks like the Watershed year here. SOMEBODY is gonna EMERGE from the Blogosphere like Beppe Grillo and do a StandUp routine and people will finally GET IT.
Sadly George has gone to the Great Beyond.We need a NEW Economic Industrial Collapse COMEDIAN…there must be one SOMEWHERE on the net, right?
Give me Strength. LOL.
