What now for the EU ?

Which branch of medicine do you work in?
Did I am retired, prior to that I practised in Milan specialising in pain relief and back issues for rich Northern Italians and Swiss nationals.
 
Do you have French citizenship?

Although - imagine this - someone created a backstory that they used to be a roughty toughty para officer. And yet they get upset and sad when they come into contact with an alternative opinion.
"created a backstory"
Is this something you do on the internet?
Most of us just be ourselves, it's clear that your MO is to create backstories for your profile.

No need to worry, the EU will just print more euros.
It's questionable whether they can print enough without being taken to the ECJ by several aggrieved member states saying it breaches the respective EU treaties.

And it's probably politically impossible anyway - the more fiscally prudent member states are going to rebel against printing money that going to have to be written off as bad debts.

Not many more kicks of the tin can left now...

Working in IT made me realise lower back pain issues, hence my decision to change direction in life.

What an amazingly accurate spreadsheet you must have of all of us. Now you can add Doctor to my entry.

But he still cannot say what is in store for the EU, other than a soup sergeant three words or so.

I already told what I expect in terms federalisation, police, military, medicine, and scientific research.

You didn't like it, because I didn't cut and paste a headline from the Daily Express.

You did say increased federalisation. What do you think of the monetary status of the EU after the coup attempt?

Explain this a bit more and I'll reply.
The EU has changed the polity by issuing debt on behalf of all its members without their consent. German courts have already ruled that it is unconstitutional.

What are your thoughts on this?

Point taken and agree - although I think was talking about insulin and then radioactive isotopes that we do not produce in the UK, so have to import them - from Belgium I recall.

You have fell into the trap of believing that a pharma company, such as Novo Nordisk (largest Insulin producer), whose country of origin is within the EU (Denmark), means we have to buy from their EU plants. We could be buy from the same company and import from their US or Brazilian plants. Hence, why I mentioned previously about global pharma companies having plants all over the world, this appears to have gone over your head.
The isotope problem is worldwide (in particular the diagnostic type due to shelf life), although this is being mitigated by flights, new tech and ongoing clinical trials. I am not suggesting their won't be problems, they always exist, (they do now!) but I'm confident they will be overcome.

The case from May?

My view? It will be worked through.
 
I'm not even going to answer that, I thought we were talking about supply issues.

No, you gave an opinion on his medical advice. So I just wondered what basis you were using to critique his advice. I suspect only another medical doctor is qualified to say if he's wrong or not.

You seem very reluctant to talk about the future of the EU. Why is that?
 
It’s funny to see the site man baby’s get upset when someone quotes expert opinion or point out they don’t know as much about medicine or health as a doctor.
I have personal experience f medical experts being wrong. Two musculoskeletal consultants dagnosed my hip pain as caused by mechanical back pain. So sure were they, that they didn't bother witth any x-rays or scans, either of which would have shown a fist-sized plasmacytoma in my iliac bone.

There are more instances but those two will suffice to make the point.

When medics were stumped by an abdominal mass, I, a layman, suggested a cause and was subsequently proved correct.

There should now be a conclusion in the final paragraph but I can't think of what to put.
