Nick Cohen on the EU being a failure of decency! Recommended!

The entire "Comment is free" of today's Observer/Guardian is linked here. Try to read it all, I will try to capture the flavour with some brief quotes:

Greece has invaded no one and committed no crimes against humanity. Yet the EU, which boasts that solidarity is its founding principle, is forcing it into destitution and chaos.....

Currency union is – self-evidently – a disaster. Admitting that would bring a loss of face too great for the European elites to bear.....

Europe does not seem pleasant, prosperous or peaceful today. When historians write about the end of its postmodern utopia, they will note that it was not destroyed by invading armies anxious to plunder Europe's wealth or totalitarian ideologues determined to install a dictatorship, but by politicians and bureaucrats, who appeared to be pillars of respectability, but turned out to be fanatics after all.
