Unbelievable.

The United Kingdom will eventually join the euro...that was the bizarre prediction yesterday from eurozone chief Jean-Claude Juncker. The president of Luxembourg – known as Mr Euro – also claimed that the zone would emerge “stronger than ever” from its current crisis. He said: “The moment will come when the United Kingdom, after looking at reality, will say to itself that it is better to be in the essential machine of Europe than to sit in the stand watching the action.”

Poor Juncker appears to have taken leave of his sanity. The Eurozone is melting down, there is mass unemployment, there is the scent of revolution on the streets, the Euro has fallen to the level of chocolate money in a heatwave, and HE thinks the UK will abandon its centuries old currency to be part of this disaster?????

  1. But this is where the divergence with the people emerges. This fool regards the people and their wants and desires as unimportant. Mind you, there are not many people in Luxembourg.

  2. I thought the Euro was a currency, not a white powder sniffed by politicians. There’s no other explanation for this spreading, mental derangement.

  3. “The moment will come when the United Kingdom, after looking at reality, will say to itself that it is better to be in the essential machine of Europe than to sit in the stand watching the action.”

    There’s some action that it’s best to keep away from, the action in this case being the “machine of Europe” mincing the constituent economies. The UK’s situation really is worse than many member countries of the Euro, but being in the Euro would have made things even worse than that.

  4. The Brits might buy the Euro at the rate of 1,000 € to 1£ soon.

    The price of metal is rocketing.

  5. I presume you mean precious metals Ed?
    That’s good news, as I’ve just covered the whole bathroom in gold paint.

  6. Jean-Claude Juncker is a one world government man speaking in defence of the euro, which is a one world government move.

    I think I can see what he’s getting at. It might be a euro after Greece and one or two others have left, leaving a core of stronger economies to take forward the EU/euro project. That’s when the worms – the Mandelsons, the Clarkes, the Heseltines, the Cleggs – will trot out those old lines about how “we have to be in there and not on the sidelines”.

  7. “I remember attending an EU conference in Luxembourg in the early 1990s and questioning the aptness of a common currency to a continent of widely diverging economies. A look of horror crossed every face, as if I had questioned the virgin birth and resurrection in one. Could I not understand that a single currency would “level up” the whole European economy to match German efficiency? It would force the weak to become competitive. It was the cement that would bind a European superstate.
    Those whom history proves right are warned never to cheer. It is always “too soon to tell”. But when I think back to the smugness of those well-fed, unaccountable, untaxed Eurocrats, I am not surprised at their aloofness in still wanting to inflict their dogma on hapless Greece and Spain. How else could the untaxed Christine Lagarde, now head of the IMF, stand up and accuse Greeks of not paying taxes? A currency fashioned to enrich German exporters and ensnare Mediterranean nations in German credit was never going to work.”
