LETTER: EU PITFALL FOR BLAIR

LETTER: EU PITFALL FOR BLAIR

Sir: I read with some sadness of David Owen's new New Europe venture to oppose the euro.

My regret was not triggered by Owen's admirable attempt to complete the full set of political parties he has split and weakened, as the Conservatives now look ripe for the peculiar Owen magic. However, Dennis Healey's involvement in this sad adventure is a shame, and I feel that Healey's earlier assessment of Owen - here was a uniquely lucky man, the good fairy gave him charm, good looks and intelligence; unfortunately the bad fairy made him a complete shit - continues to hold true.
