Nay, I'm Proud to be an Enemy of Europe- Peter Hain, Britain’s Europe Minister joins the Euroweenie brigade with this quote
“The enemies of the euro are also the enemies of Europe. What they want is purely and simply the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union and an association with the American bloc.”
Given that a majority of Brits are opposed to joining the Eurozone and the Metric Martyrs case just in the news makes the Hain quote a bit explosive. The Tories were quick to call this an insult to "70 per cent of the country, people who are happy to co-operate with the rest of Europe but who are determined to keep control of their own jobs and mortgages.” Hey, siding with the US shouldn't be seen as an insult.
