Greater public awareness through the media of the dire consequences of both the EU and EMU membership is required. What we get, not least from the BBC, sadly, is a stream of Europhile platitudes, unsupported assertions and downright untruths, all building on the theme of inevitability and necessity.
Your recent Millbank on-message letter from Bill Rammell MP (4 August) provided a neat illustration. "The Euro is now virtually a reality [did he mean virtual reality?] ... people are focusing on a choice ... A single currency with lower interest rates, lower inflation, more jobs and a means to tackle currency speculation ..." And the weather will always be fine on bank holidays,because the EU will fix it for us.
