Euro collapse

Man, who'd have thought it, France giving up the ghost on the European constitution and causing the pack to slide! Only thing is I'm getting paid in Euros at present, so although being a Brit, the thought of my pay packet being hit, kinda leaves me wondering why we bothered supporting a unified Europe in the first place. Ideals aside, the people running Brussels have done themselves no favours by rank-and-file corruption scandals and silly rules on the shapes and sizes of fruit and veg. As the press have quite rightly said, they should have started out with statement of purpose on what Europe might become and not start fiddling with each countries own sovereignty and laws.

Sad, because with some much environmental destruction going on a unified Europe needs to exist to pull us all together..
