I think so. At least that is my reading of it.

And everyone thought the UK were just being stubborn not wanting to join! We saw the future for the €

It has gone exactly as I thought! The strong countries getting richer and the weak countries being propped up/bailed out by the stronger countries, who end up resenting it, as they can't have their second car/home.

As a travelller it is handy, you don't come home with loads of seperate currency, but that is the only plus I can see.

I hope we NEVER join!
