The deal was struck. The EU and the eurozone are on a new path towards a more strict fiscal union. And with the deal, it is very likely a move towards a double speed Europe, or a union within a Union. Britain has isolated itself from the new treaty by a veto from its PM David Cameron. Whether such a move is good or not for the UK, only time will tell. It would be frivolous to make predictions now, as it is likely that Britain will remain a part of the EU, only now left out of some main decision making and possibly regulatory standards.
