Europe and the Euro
You will have noticed, Mrs Trellis, that I had a brief respite from blogging last week, taking a short visit to Paris. While there, I was greatly afflicted by blogsickness so I had to rush back to ensure keeping you in complete ignorance of what I was doing there. (It had something to do with masochism, if you must know.)
First of all, I was quite delighted to have to change sterling into euros and back again - what could be more sensible? If we did not have to make our individual contributions towards exchange profiteering plus commission, how else would we waste our money? On bingo or the lottery, I'd be bound. Such frivolity.
I arrived back to find the debate about Europe in full swing. It should be obvious why we should have as little to do with Europe as possible. Gordon Brown's economic tests are so irrelevant and trivial that it falls to me to summarise the real arguments against the euro, Europe, and all things European.
If God had meant us to have anything to do with the continent, he would never have given us
the Channel (La Manche)Let me be quite clear that these are carefully thought out arguments. Not for me the lies and spinning of the faceless men of Brussels and their traitorous English colleagues (Chris Patten is the worst). I really love not being part of the silly European nonsense. No good will come of it; you mark my words.
