End the corruption and it's a whole different ballgame....
I know that - but it still seems strange that France has gone public in an arena where they are traditionally quiet, at least in the media, until they want to stir it up a bit to the detriment of others...
You end corruption by keeping it SMALL and under the eagle eye of the local citizens. The bigger you get the more opportunity for corruption and the more likely it will attract Greedy Power hungry Sociopaths who are willing to do anything to claw to the seats of power.

In that sense, it could even be seen as a German backed power play to bring the Euro back into contention as the worlds strongest currency.

This in turn, from a conspiracy point of view, would make the transition to one world government much easier, with global, continental, country and regional assemblies arrayed in a hierarchy.
The danger would be that the poorer nations would have even less of a voice than they do now - which would mean no voice at all, if the current status quo of corporate, greed driven governments remained.
