The thing I always wondered about the European Union--and which no one was ever to explain to me--is what the mechanism for secession is.
If a country wanted to leave the E.U., or did something to merit being kicked out, how would that work? I assume the planners in Brussels had some contingency for this, however unlikely. After all, it's not hard to think of a few doomsday scenarios under which it becomes advantageous either to the Union or to individual member states for the two to part ways.
Maybe it's just as simple as dropping the euro and reverting to your own sovereign currency?
