"Mr President, there is a scene in the British sitcom, Fawlty Towers, in which Basil Fawlty is thrown into an illogical rage by his car breaking down yet again. He begins to whip it with a tree branch while swearing at it. Jeroen Dijsselbloem has surely become the Basil Fawlty of Europe. Instead of just admitting that the euro does not work and the engine is broken, he rains down abuse on the unfortunate people of southern Europe in an impotent display of ill temper. We are nearly a decade on from the start of the crisis and yet we are still talking about keeping Greece locked in a currency union with Germany. This is unbelievable. The engine is faulty, the vehicle does not drive and all the state of denial is achieving is more human misery, more poverty, more unemployment, more damage to the social fabric and more deflation without end. A proud nation is being sacrificed to the ideology of integration at all costs and, from where I am sitting, that looks shameful."@en1
