There's no fool like an old fool.

You can tell the EUphiles are getting desperate when they start wheeling out the likes of Michael Hesletine to try and salvage their position. hen again I might be wrong and it's the EUsceptics who let him have his rave as it certainly will not have done the EUphile cause any good at all, still I think I'll apply Occams razor and assume Hesletine thought he might actually be doing his cause some good.

FORMER Cabinet Minister Lord Heseltine fuelled Tory tensions over policy on Europe yesterday by ­insisting that Britain will join the euro.
The Tory peer, who is an adviser to David Cameron on economic growth, claimed the ailing single currency will survive the present crisis and grow stronger, eventually leading to the UK scrapping the pound.
And he further infuriated Conservative Euro-sceptics by describing the European Union as a “remarkably ­successful adventure”.
His outburst, in a BBC interview, came amid new signs of Tory splits on policy towards the EU.
London Mayor Boris Johnson, seen by some as a future Conservative leader, rubbished the Prime Minister’s call for a “big bazooka” euro solution.
The controversy left senior party ­figures again at odds over Europe.
Lord Heseltine said: “I think we will join the euro. I think the chances are the euro will survive because the determination, particularly of the French and the Germans, is to ­maintain the coherence that they’ve created in Europe. “My guess is that they will find a way through. I hope they will, because the downside for the British economy of the euro going under is catastrophic.”
 Utter bollocks of course, even his later assertion that the EU prevented war is an outright lie, what prevented a war was American troops on German soil and a very dangerous Soviet Union poised to gobble up the European states if they collapsed. Now there's no Soviet Union, few if any American troops and Germany is suddenly flexing its economic muscles again despite or because of the EU, it makes no difference, Germany is the EU's economic powerhouse, its will, will prevail eventually as Greece and Italy have suddenly found out. The other sniggeringly hilarious detail Hesletine appears to have forgotten is that the UK would require a referendum on joining the €uro, unless of course our politicians decide not too, though I suspect even those parasites know their heads would go into the noose if they did.
Can anyone imagine the UK voting to drop the pound and join the €uro? Even in their wildest federast dreams, the EUphiles know they wont get away with that one.
