Might Merkel’s Words Lead To This?

The Euroland summiteers believe their 14th effort at resolving the crisis has done the trick. Sceptics and doomsayers claim its just sticking plaster and will soon fall off. Meanwhile a controversial British historian posits a shocking ‘what-if’….

Historian Dominic Sandbrook on the next World War.

British historian and author Dominic Sandbrook traces this scenario based on the widely reported remarks of Chancellor Angela Merkel in the final hours of hothouse summiteering in Brussels: “Chancellor Angela Merkel gave her parliamentarians a chillingly prescient warning.

‘No one should believe that another half century of peace in Europe is a given — it’s not,’ she said. ‘So I say again: if the euro collapses, Europe collapses. That can’t happen.’ “

From this warning he crafts a what-if scenario which, dear reader you can assess for yourselves here: “At the time, many observers scoffed that she was being absurdly melodramatic. But, seven years on, no one is laughing. What Mrs Merkel had grasped — and what many European leaders refused to recognise — was that the Continent was threatened by a toxic combination of spiralling debt, economic recession, surging anarchism and a pervasive collapse of confidence in capitalism itself…”
