THE COMICAL THING...:

Hague 'keen on looser ties with EU' (Evening Standard, 10 Sep 2011)

Foreign Secretary William Hague has reportedly said he believes Britain could "get ahead" by loosening its ties with Europe.

Offering hope to increasingly vocal eurosceptics in the Conservative Party, he said it is "certainly not career suicide" to become linked to a new group that wants a shift in the UK's relationship with Brussels.

Speaking about a more distant relationship with the EU in an interview with The Times, he said: "It's true of the euro, it could be true of more areas in future. In fact we may get ahead as a result of being outside."

Mr Hague said the creation of the eurozone without closer tax and spending rules was "always a giant mistake" and it "would stand as a monument in time to how group-think can go so seriously away from what is realistic".


...is that the usual suspects think the crisis will lead to a tighter EU and further surrender of sovereignty.
