With a number of countries is dire straits about their current solvency can the Euro provide the level playing field that it was supposed to.
One thing we should all certainly agree on is that the financial big hats have created a right old mess, Austerity?
But the other side to the argument is that by creating a single currency the speculation element was removed (at least partially).
Only very few people gain from such speculation.
The rest of us just pay and then pay again.
A complex and difficult experiment for sure, and hated by the self same speculators no doubt.
Indeed such folk are well represented amongst the "leave" campaigners and financiers.
At the moment we, as a Nation, would be better off had we joined the Euro, the pound having lost so much worth.
