Tory Eurosceptics prepare a ‘retrieval of powers’ plan if Greece leaves Euro

Not sure what realistic chance they’ll have of being successful, but it’s clearly an attempt to set the agenda in advance of any major shock to the system:

If Greece were to be ejected from the euro, EU treaty changes would be required to clarify the situation and any such renegotiation among all 27 member states would inevitably prompt calls from Tory MPs to repatriate powers. Thirty MPs from a new all-party parliamentary group met on Thursday to discuss EU social policy and identify a set of powers they would like to see returned to the UK should a treaty change arise in the coming weeks.

Europe’s difficulty; Britain’s opportunity?
