The Euro: Recriminating about the past has its uses
Peter Oborne writes: Speaking in the House of Commons in 1936, Winston Churchill said: "The use of recriminating about the past is to enforce effective action at the present." So what should we learn from the argument over the euro?
"The cranks", the "loons", small business people and honest people were right. Joining the euro would have been a catastrophe for Britain.
Big business, big politicians, big crooks and the big BBC were wrong.
But make no mistake, they will try to make the same mistake again because it's lucrative, and they will try to drag the British people with them.
