Daniel Hannan asks those who thought the euro was a good idea to admit reality. The euro is an utter failure. The UK is infinitely better off not being in the euro zone!
In a superb blog post, Peter Oborne says that he contacted the chief proponents of monetary union – Hezza, Brittan, Mandie, Kinnock, Kennedy – to ask whether their views had changed. None returned his call.
I’m not holding out for a retraction (although Danny Alexander deserves credit for being one of the few Lib Dems publicly to have admitted that he got it wrong). But it would be nice if the BBC stopped trotting these characters out as if they were disinterested experts, while presenting those of us who opposed the euro as Right-wing eccentrics. We don’t want an apology, those of us who got the call right: we just want to be listened to next time.
