London mayor says the European Union is headed for a new dark age. In an op-ed article published in The Canberra Times, Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, England, said that the problems in Greece are only the beginning of worse things to come.

He wrote, "Every day we read of fresh horrors: of once proud families queuing for bread, of people in agony because the government has run out of money to pay for cancer drugs. Pensions are being cut, living standards are falling, unemployment is rising, and the suicide rate is now the highest in the EU." He called for the EU to be broken up in to two smaller unions and said the continued unity of European countries would "consign the continent to a democratic dark ages."
