Well I'd like to apologize for my xenophobic comment, it wasn't meant to come across as that but there you go with politically correct sh!t. But Tony Blair isn't just simply trying to get us to join Europe and have a new currency but he is giving little bits of our independence away. It starts with the Euro but ends with us having the EU in Brussels as our Government. The fact is we are strong on our own we don't need the Euro as our currency. It does amaze me how Blair is trying to pull the wool over people's eyes. But he isn't alone, like every other political system ours is full of corruption and propaganda. But we have the problem that we are weak when we meet our European neighbours. The fact we have accepted EU law as our own has disrupted law and order and ruined this once great country. The common market is a waste of time as well. Look whats its done to our agriculture industry, although with the foot and mouth disease and mad cow disease doing so much damage you'd have forgotten the legislation thats ruined the industry. But we can survive within Europe without many of these things. The Euro included. The Euro does pose damaging effects on our economy and for industry. Blair hasn't told you that and he wont be likely to. Once i thought we were a great and independent country who wouldn't let anyone push us around but now we've become weak and easily manipulated. If only we were as clever as the Swiss, they aren't in the EU and they are surviving well without it, same goes for Norway. Do we really need the EU? Why be dependent on a system which is bureacratic and dangerously close to corruption? Keeping the pound isn't so much about keeping a stupid note and coins, its about controlling our finances and being able to make our own decisions without bureacrat influence. Its about being Great Britain, not Europe, and if you want its about holding our traditions and keeping something that makes us British. Damn i feel like i'm doing a speech against the Euro. Never mind, the truth is many are still against the Euro and Blair won't get the chance to make this "European Utopia" which begins with the Euro.
