A pointed turn of phrase

From Ambrose Evans-Pritchard:

Dr Merkel, what we have is the crisis of a foolish monetary union that ought to be shut down but is being kept alive because the priesthood has endowed it with sacred significance. Let stop this absurd quasi-religious charade. The euro is nothing but a currency. It has no intrinsic importance. None.

To claim that Europe fails if the euro fails is hollow rhetoric. The great democracies of Europe will march on serenely.
