The probability of that happening is enough that it ought not be dismissed, and having recognised that probability, is it right to ignore it or add to it?
Best to add to it, instead of prolonging it to the detriment of all its Members. The EURO is in ever-deeper trouble, and there will be more Member exits before long. When the EURO was being introduced I said it was a crassly stupid idea and that "one size to fit all" could not possibly work, and time has proved me right.
Most of the more recent additions to its Members should never have been accepted for membership anyway, as they failed to meet the EU's own defined criteria for membership.
The EU and its policies bear prime responsibility for Lithuania, for example, losing about 25 - 30% of its citizens and degenerating into a country with a predominantly aged population with no future and few prospects of employment for its youth. Its housing market is consequently dead, having been ruined by the EU.
The situation is no better in Latvia and Estonia. If the EU publicity (= bullshit) machine was to be believed, those 3 ex-Soviet Baltic countries should have prospered under their EU membership, instead of which they are in a far worse state.
Frankly, every aspect of the EU I look at realistically (without being influenced by the dishonest, utopian garbage produced by the EUrobullshit machine) represents mismanagement and incompetence on a grandiose - almost unbelievable - scale and the EU only exists to benefit and for the enrichment of a handful of its own useless integrationist hierarchy.
There is not a cat in hell's chance of the EU ever fulfilling a rôle which benefits all or any of its members in the long term, hence the need for its démise asap.
