I really do not know much about the Euro. On this site though it says




Three other EU members, England, Sweden, and Denmark, decided not to replace their currencies with the euro, but euros will be accepted by England, Sweden, and Denmark, as well as the entire world.


I have never seen any Euro in the U.S.

Well, with the declining dollar in consideration, it wouldn't surprise me to see this happen indeed. China has already pulled itself away from the declining dollar. How important this will pan out to be, however, is a matter of speculation.

If we switch to anything, it'll probably be the peso.

England is not a country!! AHHHH!!! its about of the United Kingdom (which is a country) England has not been a country since 1707

Hon, they still call it England in the schools here. Either that or it's been called Britain.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain is the country; England is one of it's provinces. However, in American slang, "England" often refers to the nation of Britain, just like in the past the Soviet Union was sometimes just referred to as "Russia".

I usually hear Russia refered to as Soviet Union. I've started calling it Russia lately and peeps look at me funny about it.

Yes the Euro is everywhere, European countires that work with the Euro buy a lot of oil and goods, and they pay in Euros, or dollars. But there is no need for a Euro to be in the USA, because you all deal in dollars.

Actually it's the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Great Britain is just England, Scotland and Wales. Also I think the Channel Islands are part of the UK but not Great Britain.

For anyone who's really that interested, there is also the British Isles, which is a geographical term not a political one, and refers to both Great Britain (the island) and Ireland (the island). It encompasses two countries - the UK and Ireland (the country of Ireland that is, not the island of Ireland).

Do I get the Smartass of the Week award?


(Just to vaguely stay on topic) the Euro is the national currency of Ireland, replacing the Punt (Irish £), but not (as has already been stated) the currency of Blighty. Somehow I can't see the bloke behind the bar at the Bull and Bush taking a Five Euro note for a couple of pints of Scruttock's Old Dirigible on a busy Saturday night.

It would take forever to convert every world market to the same currency at this point. It seems that independent nations rarely get along with themselves, let alone eachother long enough to make a sound decision.

Not to say a world currency is a sound decision.

I thought England, Whales, Scotland, Northern Ireland where all seperate countries technecly.. but are unified under the UK (England) and Great Britain was the entire Island including Scotland, England and Whales.. darn the Bits and your complicated system.. I still call you all British, or English .. just like you all call Americans Yanks, even though we may come from many many areas of the country that have never been considered a Yankee......

Anyways.. The Euro will never be accepted around the world.

There's no H is Wales. If I was Welsh (which I'm not) I would be forced to send you a thermonuclear leek to munch on, or something


The UK is quite unique in this respect, and how countries are defined depends on who you talk to. The 'entity' which is governed by Parliament at Westminster, and has Boney Tony as the PM is the UK.

Now look, you made me go even more off topic!!! (Bloody Yanks
)

As we English say:-

''British by birth, English by the Grace of God''

England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are countries with their own flags, National Anthems and Parliments/Governing Bodies that come under the unified body called the United Kingdom.
