In today’s Guardian we can read that the governor of the Bank of England, Sir Mervyn King, has warned that Britain’s recovery from the financial crisis was being impeded because the eurozone is “tearing itself apart“. Of course, a modicum of cognitive engagement here would inform us that the financial crisis has its roots in the speculation which is part and parcel of that disaster capitalism ushered in by the “Chicago Boys”. Moreover, a further chewing of the cud would also tell us that the majority of economies in the West, including, of course, the British economy, were wrecked by that disaster capitalism. ….. and the eurozone “tearing itself apart”?
What we have here, of course, is an assault on the eurozone by those very same forces that caused the crisis in the first place. Nevertheless, with Cameron picking up on the pointing the finger antics later in the day, isn’t it still sickening to listen to the drivel that is coming out of London? All the more so when stoking the fears for the eurozone comes at a time when the European commission is still insisting that it is not contemplating a breakup or the loss of Greece from the euro. Of course, what else can they do back in Blighty? After all, with the country’s manufacturing base already destroyed, they have no alternative to those financial “castles in the air” services which, quite frankly, have fucked up the whole planet. Still, blaming someone else for the mess you are in? Shabby, shabby, shabby!
No, they don’t want the eurozone to succeed, they are jealous of those countries that have held on to their manufacturing, they are extremely removed from that common European identity that is taking shape and if their financial game of chance has gone down the drain it is time for their new game …. the blame game. However, “Britain’s recovery from the biggest financial crisis in its history was being hampered by a eurozone that was “tearing itself apart”, don’t insult our intelligences, please!
