See Saint Vince Cable has been pontificating on  the topic of the next European war…

Europe could be plunged into war if the euro collapses, Vince Cable warned last night. The Business Secretary said the consequences would be ‘incalculable’ for Europe and ‘awful’ for the UK but cautioned that there was ‘no automatic guarantee’ that Europe would not disintegrate into conflict. Mr Cable spoke out just two days after the European Union was handed the Nobel Peace Prize, an award that provoked widespread ridicule at a time when tensions over the single currency have led to violence and civil unrest across Europe.

Got to love the hype and also the stunning lack of responsibility.

For starters, the failure of a currency zone does not automatically mean blood on the streets. It would be perfectly easy for individual governments to return to printing their own currencies without the need to invade each other. (Did you hear that, Germany?) Then there is the vexed issue of which politicians were cheer leaders for this doomed Union? Step forward Saint Vince Cable – the man who is always wise …after the event.

  1. Cable can be an hysterical old queen.

    If the euro’s collapse could lead to war, then best not to have had it in the first place, no? And who else would launch wars but those states that imposed the euro on an ever-more poorer number of people in the first place?

    So hundreds of millions are obliged to become poorer to avoid war? Truly, we do elect some idiots.

  2. I don’t think that the collapse of the currency (although I think it has already collapsed and is being propped up), will mean war but I can see more civil unrest. I know little about financial matters on a national or international scale but it jus seemed to me a very risky venture, with far too many uncertainties and almost impossible to control. Thank God we stayed out.

  3. Cable has lost it. There is blood on the streets now because of the Euro. The Greek economy has contracted by 20% in the past five years and is continuing to contract. That spells social breakdown.
