The style to which we've become accustomed.....

As the financial crisis and the resulting political crisis eat at the foundations of the EU, every political battle is becoming tougher. Germany wants Britain in as a balance to France and the Debtor Caucus, which think the proper use of Germany’s money is to support them in style. A lot of smaller northern countries feel the same way as Germany on this point. France, meanwhile, seems increasingly convinced that an EU without a UK will be more to its liking.
