God save the Queen!
And please put the Euro out of its misery. My favorite part in this Washington Post article is where Cameron smugly talks about how thrilled he was that the Brits kept the pound and forwent the Euro. The article made me think, though, that perhaps the whole thing was a brilliant plot by Sarkozy. I mean, France has pretty much been a doormat for anyone who ever invaded. The only question you hear asked in a French military exercise is "how quickly can we surrender?" But the tables may be turning. Sarkozy is using crushing debt, austerity programs and centralized regulations to take over Europe. And he is getting the Germans to foot the bill! Come on, that's brilliant. You can't beat 'em, so impoverish them. Of course, it could be an even better strategy by the German's. They have historically been able to win all the battles, but in the end they get all those countries taken back away from them. This time they may end up getting everything. I have to do a little legal research, but I think they just supported a proposal that would let them foreclose on Europe.
