Lord Lawson has hit the nail on the head with Europe. I was thinking how 10 years ago I was sprouting forth that the EU was not good for us and we mustn’t join the Euro . On the latter I was vindicated for exactly the reasons I was saying it. On the former, hopefully the more” big guns” with the guts to speak up , the sooner I will be vindicated there too. He goes further than me by stating that the opportunities lie in Asia not the EU It’s the elephant in the room.
But what it did get me wondering was, why did an ordinary bloke like me see what could happen so far ahead of the insiders ? The answer is quite possibly that those in power were pressing ahead to make a name for themselves rather than the greater good of the country. So nothing new there then.
