    Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right forum but it seems the most appropriate to me

    But could everyone please do this poll for a project I'm doing:

    http://www.micropoll.com/akira/mpview/631204-187670

    Also, some general comments about whether you think the UK should join the single European currency would be brilliant.

    Greatly appreciated!

    No, I don't think that Britain should join the Euro. I firmly believe that interest rates should be set on a country by country basis, also think that a country's currency represents a large part of it's sovereignty - I have no desire to see any more a Britain's sovereignty taken over by Brussels. Too many of our laws are dictated by people far removed from this country!

    No not at the moment. Even most of the pro Euro politicians are limited in their enthusiasm for joining at the moment. I can see the benefits which a single currency has, but it also places limitations on an economy, and so things have to be right before we take an irreversible plunge. I think we did right to stay outside.

    No the UK does not have the same monetary requirements as most of Europe therefore joining the Euro would damage UK industry and the British economy.

    No, Britain should be in charge of its own interest rates, otherwise it could well end up in a Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain scenario.

    I have heard serious discussions over here that the Spanish may revert to the peseta if their economy drops any further.

    I am all for Europe but all for the pound.

    I said no, i've just been to Denmark where they use their own Kroner and it was fine, in-fact i thought it was better than changing to the Euro all the time (Barring one of my friends who changed his money to euros cos he's stupid lols). For sure the Danish Kroner is not very strong but whatever.

    No, because I generally disagree with what the EU stands for (and I'm actually a lefty).

    Its for your EPQ, right?

    (I read an article on Wikipedia about the referendum that Brown had, it was a resounding no, I think this might be the same). :yep:
