As I Was Saying

"It would also be interesting to know what contingency plans the Coalition have, should the EU finally 'fold', to ensure financial trading stability for Britain."
Simon Heffer, in his article for tomorrow's Daily Telegraph, has written what I believe is an excellent summation of the euro problem and ends thus:
"We, by contrast, should be looking for new markets in America and Asia. When the inevitable happens to Europe – when Angela Merkel recognises the political suicide of spending her electors' hard-earned money on foreign wastrels – there will be a brief (or perhaps not so brief) economic dark age in the eurozone. We had better plan urgently to trade as much as we can elsewhere."
Well iDave, what say you? Or as you are no doubt hoping, will the Will/Kate 'saga' take the public's mind of more pressing matters?

You have a good point there WfW.

Were they saving Will/Kate up - poor old 'Waity Katey' has been waiting for the Euro to go t@ts up.

BJ:

"t@ts up" - no, that is what Will is hoping Katie will do!

The Heff - disturbingly right more than half the time.
