Sinking to an unfamiliar level; VIEWPOINTS.

ALTHOUGH the euro currency is the future for Britain I cannot see a referendum being won in the near future.

The negative side of the euro has to be put forward which, unfortunately, Tony Blair and many others won't put forward.

Are we to be associated with countries like Portugal where some farmers still plough fields with horses? Do we have to come down to the level of Greece where they drink goat's milk?

It is these poverty-stricken countries which will be getting the majority of the EU grants if we say 'Yes' to the euro currency in a referendum. It is only in the large cities and the tourist resorts of these countries that the standard of living is adequate.

I believe an overwhelming majority of people will give an emphatic 'No' to the euro.
