I like how europe can break apart and nobody talks about Civil War. In this country you bring the subject up and its slash and burn.

Finland's European Affairs Minister Alexander Stubb for his part told Reuters news agency that his country was 100 percent devoted to the euro and added that the foreign minister's speculation did not reflect the view of the whole government

Sounds like a suicide pact to me.

“A decade ago in her book Statecraft: Strategies for a Changing World, Margaret Thatcher famously described the European project as “perhaps the greatest folly of the modern era.” Today, a large percentage of continental Europeans would agree with the Iron Lady, as the EU’s delusions of grandeur start to crumble. Her ideas have triumphed over those of Jacques Delors and the architects of a doomed Eurofederalism.

Lady Thatcher’s dire warnings of the dangers of a European superstate were years ahead of her time, but never more relevant than they are today, as Europe faces a stark choice between the inevitable decline of ‘ever-closer union,’ or a return to national sovereignty and democratic accountability.”

"It would not have to mean the end of the wider European Union and could make the EU function better in the end."

True - and a divorce might make everyone happier and wealthier... it's happened - not often - but maybe somewhere...or not.
