    The trouble is that chaos on the continent affects us in the United Kingdom too. It is pretty clear that the European Union is both unwilling and unable to organise an orderly break-up of the Eurozone; it seems unlikely that the Eurozone is going to morph into a single ‘United States of Europe’; it surely can’t carry on in the disastrous way it seems to be going. So I expect a disorderly break-up (timing uncertain). The only alternative would seem to be an initiative from one or more EU member-states to establish a parallel grouping to the EU, possibly including some countries which at the moment are trapped in the Eurozone (and possibly also including the UK, Norway and Switzerland). Political conditions are fluid across Europe at the moment and there might well be considerable support for such a move.
