Shocked at some of the responses on this thread and its very disappointing that ATS is full of complaints about the evil elite and bankers yet we cant
even discuss on a thread without throwing insults around and making comments like 'saved your butt'. So did you personally fight in WW2, sad v.sad
we cant get over our past and work together as members of the human race, I am a human who happens to reside in the UK, what possible hope do we have
for the future.
As to the thread, totally agree with the earlier post, right wing sceptic newspaper posting a story to rattle the sabre for readers and goad the exact
response we have seen on this thread, like supping tea in a middle England country village surrounded by Times and Mail reading rich white folk. The
whole world is financial interconnected and if Sterling goes down the Euro is dead, no two ways about it. I think the French chap needs to understand
that we sold our Gold reserves and invested in the Euro, if there is a run on Sterling I wonder what the government would do to prop sterling
up....mmm ! We are a massive contributor to European trade, www.statistics.gov.uk...
, if Sterling dives and the Euro
maintains its value we are all going to have to shop locally and that will not be good for Europe. You cant have one without the other.
iF The UK economy tanks so does the Euro, they would have no choice. Besides the UK is a member (of course) of the IMF, so if we tank we will go cap
in hand to the IMF......we did it last time round with the Tories, don't see why we would not do it again. We put the money into the IMF fund as part
of the basket of currencies, then we lend it back to ourselves, with interest !! Madness I say, Madness.........
Oh, and as its a conspiracy site its interesting how the only party advocating entry to the Euro has suddenly gone from having less than 1/10th of the
government seats to being a joint partner in Government.....mmm ?
