Hard to disagree with the following from the front page article:
The government’s strategy of getting some relief on the debt has not worked so far, mainly because the European Union, and Germany in particular, are holding out for greater controls on national budget strategies, taking greater fiscal and monetary control
away from national governments.
This will put crucial economic levers and decision-making beyond national accountability. It will remove decisions about these crucial function of national governments beyond democratic control or influence. It is aimed at preventing class struggle or the mobilisation of people to influence them at the national level.
