Merkel, and the end of an 'ever closer' EU

After Germany’s election, it's likely schemes to reverse European Union integration will gain traction. And Britain’s not the only country that wants to curb the union's reach.

Most followers of the euro crisis agree that the German elections, to be held on September 22, will be a watershed moment. Everything that had been put on hold in the crisis will finally be allowed to happen once Angela Merkel has been returned to power.

This is one way of looking at it. It is certainly plausible that all the painful and ultimately inevitable decisions on the future of the eurozone – everything that will cost German taxpayers money — will have to wait until election day.
