Skip to comments.Cameron says Euro needs single government: report
Posted on 05/08/2012 11:44:25 PM PDT by Olog-hai
A successful eurozone requires a single government if it is to work properly, British Prime Minister David Cameron said in a newspaper interview on Wednesday.
"There's nowhere in the world that has a single currency without having more of a single government," Cameron told Britain's Daily Mail.
"Making sense of the euro for me would mean that those eurozone countries would have to have much more coordinated economic policy, much more coordinated debt policy," he said.
Cameron, who opted out of a new European economic pact late last year, advocated Britain's position outside the euro and its ability "to do things to ourselves, for ourselves, by ourselves."

They can barely even run their own country right, but he wants one government run by people who don’t even have YOU or your PEOPLE’s interest in mind?
Sounds like the perfect recipe to send Europe back to the dark ages.
Though it sounds more like he’s giving his reasons WHY the EU will never work.
Doesn’t help his case that he’s suggesting the very thing that the euro elites want.
He’s a full blown nutter!
Reuters headlines never match the body text.
He isn’t advocating that Euro-users become a single political unit. He’s saying that that’s what it would take for the Euro to work.
Oh yeah, that'll end well...
what’s a “eurozone” and why would it be needed
I think a “ euro zone” is kinda like the kings castle.....it’s where the “rulers” of their European subjects cook up what they’re gonna do to them next....and hide out from the peons and peasants with pitchforks.
Otherwise I dunno......
sounds like a perfect introduction to WW3..
A single European government? Wasn’t that Hitler’s goal too?
The current issue, I think, has more to do with the lack of a common social benefits and tax policy. The Greek view, and now apparently the French view as well, seems to be that everyone in Greece and France gets to retire early, that Greek and French politicians get to spend like there's no tomorrow, and that the Germans will pay for it.
Then, when that fails, they will say the entire world must have only one govt.
I’ve never read a thread where so many people have completely misunderstood the article and then posted as this one.
Read it carefully and try again.
You haven’t been here very long have you? ;)
I love FR, but posting without reading the article is a long tradition around here.
I agree, I interpret his comment as throwing down the gauntlet. He is daring them to stop being political-economic hypocrites, and they can’t do it. Cameron knows it.
Ze drem vil finali kum tru.
Whose side are you on?
Does it now? Then why is his solution to give them everything they’re dreaming of?
“Whose side are you on?”
The side of those who can read and understand written English.
Cameron is clearly explaining why the euro can never work by explaining that in order for it to do so, impossible things need to happen.
Oh; I thought you were on the side of tyrants. My bad. Please explain how Cameron’s “explanation” that giving the euro elites everything they want will be a solution that benefits anyone, then. (Because it isn’t impossible.)
Cameron wants the UK to remain out of the Euro because the Euro will eventually require abrogation of national governments.
The euro is just one of many tools that they intend to use for that purpose. You signed up to any of those treaties, they got a tool for that.
