Sir: John Hawgood asks why so much of the debate on the euro focuses on the UK's interests rather than those of the EU as a whole (letter, 10 September). Speaking for myself the answer is quite simple and obvious: it's because I happen to live here, and what affects the UK's prosperity affects me personally. And whilst I wish people living in other countries well - whether they're inside or outside the EU, or NAFTA, or the United Nations or whatever - I don't really care about their political and economic standing in the world in the slightest.
