The problems of the EU, again

Will the euro survive?Will the euro survive?
Introduction -

A casual look at the EU shows the big beasts of the day locked into a battle to save their dream. But dig a little deeper and you see all sorts of people about to suffer from a career-long obsession with the EU and the single currency.

Have they have gone quiet or have we gone deaf? Not so many years ago there was a never ending stream of the great and the good telling us that the UK should join the euro. The implication was the sky would fall in and we would all starve to death unless the single currency was adopted. The Confederation of British Industry was typical of this siren call, its Chairman would routinely find time to take part in BBC programmes to spread the word. Propaganda this was not, this was real public service broadcasting!
