Among those who doesn’t, apparently, is our Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne. What Schroeder is proposing differs very little from what Osborne was suggesting earlier this summer when he wrote in the Telegraph:
I agree totally with Osborne that where policymaking decisions are concerned, it is a British government’s job to place British interests above all else. But if he honestly believes that the best way to make the nasty problem go away is to sacrifice the entire Eurozone to the political and regulatory strictures of a German-dominated superstate then maybe the history teaching at St Paul’s isn’t quite as brilliant as I’d imagined.
