Otiose outrecuidance...


What could they have been thinking by producing are THIS? On January 1st the EU will celebrate the first 10 years of the Euro euro banknotes and coins. Incredibly, the unbelievably inane and sanctimonious sounding soundtrack fails to mention the EU once; Europe is mentioned continuously.

Hat-tip: England Expects via EU Referendum.

One of the points about the Euro that Booker brings up and a lot of anti-Euro sceptics bring up is the transfer of wealth from north to south as being a reason for its failure. Surely though this happens everywhere that one part of an economy is stronger than another. Look at how weighted towards the south east the UK economy has been for years or the USA was to either coast whilst the south appeared to be just holiday homes and hurricanes.

I think the non-democratic political reasons are why most objectors object after all those on the far right in the UK who object are quite happy for a disproportionate few owning most of the wealth.

I agree, transfer of wealth happens everywhere at country, region, even town level.

Indeed, I know my own objection is an unaccountable elite monolith spewing money hand over fist, also the legal/court side (coming to the forefront again, euro arrest warrant etc). Far right and left would be happy with dictator...it's what they do.

And at least you are honest about the reasons rather than hiding behind some flim flam about wealth transfer.
