In the current article a brief commentary is made on the European political situation, in the aftermath of the profound crisis in which the Union is immersed ever since the arrival of the hurricane Euro. In the face of the complexity of the theme, the article is focused on two subjects marking the European agenda: on the one hand, the gradual rising of a different narrative about the Euro crisis vis-à-vis that which has prevailed in Germany's speech, as well as that of the main EU countries and the supranational institutions; on the other hand, the difficulties that may stand in the way of European politics at the institutional level, should the Eurozone countries - or a hard nucleus of member-states - decide to go ahead with a solution involving the furtherance of the integration process.
