The Future of Europe?

Today, EU leaders meet to come up with a final plan designed to tackle the eurozone crisis. According to the French Prime Minister, failure to reach an agreement 'could tip the European continent into unknown territory'. This cartoon is available as a t-shirt design in our webshop.

Couldn't phrase it better, Mike, totally agree. Thanks a lot, Quel!

Whoa, Spiros! What a BURN! Awesome!

Seriously, though... in terms of England adopting an austerity regime even though there's no problem to speak of, "they" don't need an actual problem to foist this off on us -- all they need is a corporate class that's not satisfied with the massive amounts of money they're raking in for themselves already.

That's what's happening in the US, more or less; the politicians and the media have insisted that the "debt ceiling" is the problem and used it as a cover to force an austerity regime on us while ignoring the real problems. Unemployment and foreclosures will continue to increase, and the gap between the One Percenters and the rest of us will continue to widen.

It certainly will be worth a revisiting. Propably will do one after the 25 March meeting, where the" E.U. 2.O" will in all propability be unveiled. We'll see, we 'll see....

An interesting new take on a popular cartoon theme. I would be interested to see you revisit this occasionally to reflect how the financial crisis develops. (Might we see a poor banker or politician rummaging through the skip? I suspect not.)
Tjeerd: The whole of the EU is heading for bankruptcy in the long term. Our way of life is not sustainable.

Wow! This a great cartoon, I love it!

Thanks.Thought of this, Steve. An enlargement might make a clustering mess of things, but I was pondering other solutions like a tad more thickness in the lines or some weird perspective to the flag or just a partial presentation of it which would imply that the rest is the same. I ll propably tweak some alternate version soon

Funny. You might want to enlarge each dumpster-figure by about ten percent to make the cartoon read a bit more quickly, though.

Τhanks, Tjeerd and Pavel!

Ah, thanks for explaining, Spiros. It's a great image, you have my vote!

That's the worst case scenario, and a highly unlikely one. It;s more about more and more of the people having to live in increasingly worsening conditions through "austerity measures" favoured and pitched by Germany foremost, but even being adopted by countries like the England that had no immediate problem to speak of, but went ahead with austerity measures anyway.This is a recipe in my opininon of widening inequality, and one thing about inequality is that it's not evenly distributed. Very few will gain very much. The rest will have to make do with scraps (sometimes literally, hence the cartoon)

Good and funny idea ! (the life is not so funny...)

I like the image very much, although it took me a moment to figure it out (which I hope I did correctly). It's about (some of) European's member states, and therefore the whole of Europe, heading for bankruptcy?
