    Last week when we ordered some Euros from Thomas Cook in local village for collection today (we know you can get a better rate on line but for a good reason we didn't want to do that) we were quoted €1.12/£ - when collecting today we got €1.142 - very pleased with that.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    given the current financial climate you will get 10 euro's to the pound in 2012,
    but wont be able to spend them as nowhere will accept them:thumb:

    It's been "serious" for, what, 65 years, but now it's got beyond cover up.

    It might have been the first WW but certainly the WW 2. All that destruction. Loss of prime lives, skills, materials. That costs money and ironically as victors I think we were bigger losers than the Germans. We certainly got screwed big time by the Yanks for their assistance. We might even have got a better deal financially with Hitler.

    Since then boom/bust time and time again. Always some fudge to paper over the cracks. And worse always talking up the situation ( for votes ) so we believed all was well and our expectations kept rising.

    Well it's payback time.

    I wonder how much Marjal will be charging in New Pesetas ?

    So Greece will announce the New Drachma = 1 Euro, then a week later revalue it 1 New Deutschmark = 10 Drachma ? The the whole of Germany will go on holiday in Greece, Greece is rich and the fairy godmother smiles benevolently.

    Not sure, What I know is that the sittuation can not continue. I am sick to death of hearing about it. We have had over 3 years now of worries and Hilldwellers day of gloom (rightly I might add) but if it happens it happens,
    we swallow the medicine, and get on with a major rebuild project. We tried it, it didn't work, but at least it was tried (united states of europe).
    We still grow things, we still make things (just) we still have infastructure, therefore, effectively we are far better off than we were at the end of the war.

    Or

    We keep going on about it for another 3 years, 5 years, 7 years who knows even 10 years. With an ever increasing uncertainty about our prospects.

    So is it that bad?

    We owe it to your kids, my grand kids to get it right for once. Give them half a chance for an optimistic future.

    Stability.

    Something to build on. A goal.

    i don't personally care about the euro or our European neighbours.I am just worried about the impact on our economy.I am in a service industry and demand has been strong for the past 6 months and our profits were well up leading to a consideration for the first time in 5 years of giving our staff a decent rise.

    Now with this uncertainty I fear we cannot commit to higher salaries because if another recession is around the corner it would put us under I fear along with 60 odd staff.

    But Europe , the European Union, The Human Rights Act, The European Court of Justice can all go to hell.

    If it's going to fragment then let's make it total.
