yes i would agree... and, i think as european national elections roll by one by one well see 'technically possible' change to 'possible'...then later change to something like 'an option'... then, if the shit keeps hitting the fan year upon year like it has, the term 'probable' can be used
right now we have a massive campaign in ireland for the YES vote in the upcoming fiscal union treaty, mostly on the basis that it will send a good message to investors that the irish are good boys and girls and won't upset the payment of debt which will in turn promise the growth enabling ireland to make good on that debt... a debt which in fact is not their own, when you consider that when a bank lends money it is actually providing a commercial service that is ITS own responsibility...
there is in fact, an easier way... article 50... sending the existing EU system into collapse, hopefully to be rebuilt in favour of fairer economic models...
Anyway if the Irish say No, they will have to vote again, until they obey (just like Nice & Lisbon).
An easier way but what would be more harmful for the population? Isn't it better to anticipate? I mean, how many people in the EU know about article 50. It could at least be discussed on TV.
Lol at the Harvard students. Where I'm living, nobody's paying any attention to MSM anymore (whether written press editorials or TV). Waste of time. We all inform on the Internet. Their sales figures are dropping massively.
Interesting YT clip, by the way.

A means Euro exit, no? Unlikely.
B is partly what Sapir predicts. Hollande won't hold on for more than 2 years. However the French constitution clearly states that if a President resigns he's replaced by the President of the Senate (who is not a GS man) until the next elections. So?
