Thread Name: BS: Should UK join the Euro ?
Subject: RE: BS: Should UK join the Euro ?
I don't think that adoption of the Euro in the UK is inevitable. And while I doubt that it would be to my personal benefit [Pensions--not prices-- tend to be rounded down rather than up!], I do think that it would benefit the people in the long run. It would encourage European integration for a start [and by geography and ancestry Brits ARE European], and would harmonise monetary affairs and facilitate trade. I hope the people vote "yes". Britain is an offshore European island. We should accept that, and cease the harking back to the days of Empire. They are in the past, and a good thing too.
