Macrone just signed a law where Italian will no longer be taught in France. The idea that Europe is one big happy family is so far from reality that this is part of the backdrop behind the bearishness of the euro. The old resentments remain.

What should have remained as a simple trade union instead of attempting to federalize Europe, is now only increasing the tensions throughout the continent.
