I always have the greatest respect for your posts but I cannot believe that you are asking this question at this moment in time nor that you are undecided on the matter.

After seeing all the fault lines and misery that the eurozone has imposed on various countries, I would have thought that even the most ardent of eurozone supporters would be lying low now.

I am a big supporter of the European Union, but the creation of the eurozone is purely a political rather than an economic concept and that is why it is in a mess.

When the political elite of member countries shy away from full consultation with their electorates over treaty changes and technocratic governments supplant democratic ones, you know that something has gone horribly wrong with the european dream.
