Sniggers in Spain

Mariano Rajoy, the Spanish prime minister, has called for the eurozone to have “centralised control” over the budgets of all the countries using the euro.

Tee Hee.

One of the problems in Spain being that they have devolved administrations who run their own budgets and which are therefore not under the control of Madrid.

This problem would not, in any manner at all, repeat if 17 national administrations were \”run\” fromBrussels.

Nope, not at all, Couldn\’t ever happen.

  1. One of the problems with the euro-federal project is that it is not, in fact, federal as in successful federations such as Australia, Canada, and the USA, where the individual states or provinces have significant responsibilities, flexibility, and their own budgets and tax bases. Instead, eurofederalism is invariably a discussion about further central control, and no power once acquired is ever returned.

    Even so, British politicians seem in the main to think that 40 more years of this political pain is somehow worthwhile.
