Along with bad puns, see below, Sullivan captures the essence of the Euro divide:
The vote makes economic reforms harder not easier; and will probably mean even worse times for the euro-area economy. This isn't good for Europe, for the prospect of Angela Merkel's reforms in Germany, and for the U.S. Chirac lost in part because he wasn't anti-Anglo-American enough. Every day, I feel more amazed at what Margaret Thatcher achieved for Britain. Without her, Britain would be in the same state as France: deadlocked in decline with no one bold enough to shake the whole system up. She made all the difference.
