First, I bet none of the brouhaha would have happened if a "
" appeared after both statements! I was just humouring the thread.
Second, I have do deal with Euro-using companies every day. So it's not exactly an alien concept. And yes, I have seen some coinage here in MAN....my colleague got some in his change a couple of weeks ago. He didn't realise it at the time and only discovered it when I needed some small change. One of the coins is a dead ringer in size for a 1p piece! I'm just a bit cynical as to what British companies will do if it is adopted...can you imagine anyone rounding prices downward?
Third, I will defend my right to make whatever comments I want to make. That is unless the Thought Police have now been introduced.
Fourth, I never believe in opinion polls either because 99% of the time, whoever commissions them gets the results they require!
Fifth, as per one of my posts in a much earlier thread, I did propose the "Pangaea" as a common global currency. There's not much point in removing 11 currencies from the world, leaving behind 100s more; if we want "transparent" prices, then a global currency is the only way forward.
Sixth, will we be getting by it the stealth method or by referendum as stated by I'm Tory Plan B before the elections.
