Is this organization flexible enough to make sure that countries inside the eurozone can grow and succeed, and countries outside the eurozone like Britain can find what they need as well, if it's flexible enough, we'll stay. If it's not flexible enough we'll have to ask ourselves a very profound question: is this organization for us?
