    I know I should leave this to Labour but I think he does just wouldn't admit to it in public.

    Hi,
    In reply to your question, Ed Miliband said this when asked if he thought Britain would join the Euro:
    "very, very unlikely... I don't think it's going to happen... I can't see it in the foreseeable future".

    On the contrary former Conservative cabinet minister Lord Heseltine in April said that he thought, Britain would join the Euro if the Euro survived...

    We here at the TSR Labour Party are against Britain joining the Euro. Thank you for visiting our thread and asking this question

    Why not allow other countries to have the pound, and the ounce, the furlong, the yard and other great British units of currency or measurement? Except perhaps Ecuador if William Hague declares war on them.

    I doubt Hague will declare war on Ecuador. Personally I would not use the 1987 Act, the costs of doing so outweighs any benefit that we might gain. Best thing to do is sit and wait. Assange can not stay in the Ecuadorian embassy for the rest of his life..

    Please take into account that these are TSR Labour not real life Labour. Whilst some may be members in real life often they have different views and do not always tow the official party line.

    Just to confirm, is the Honourable Gentleman saying that the United Kingdom should have a referendum regarding whether to join the single currency?

    If that is the case then we unfortunately disagree with the Honorable Gentleman. We do not envisage a situation in the near future where the British people will favour joining the single currency. We are proud of the British Pound and do not wish to give it up.

    Why does anyone have pride in a currency? It's simply a mechanism for transaction. Would you have pride in a piece of string were it used for such a purpose? The TSR Labour Party are pushing some odd ideas at the moment.

    It is not just about the currency and mechanics of currency transaction. It is about the symbolism and status of the currency across the world. Having an autonomous currency which is personal and exclusive to your country and respected around the world is an immense source of pride.

    Mr Speaker, if the member is not proud of having a strong currency which is respected around the world, then that is his opinion. We do not support his point of view.

    What a freakishly affected manner of speech. You want us all to be patriotic zombies? Yay Britain yay, irrespective? Yay we bombed people? Yay British guns? What has happened to Labour's internationalism?
