Here’s how to start an argument in Britain. Suggest that far from being inherently flawed, the euro is fixable and could succeed in the long run. Suggest Britain should even consider joining it at some point. This last idea is a proposition with which the majority of British people disagree, strongly. I know this because the think tank Policy Network has today published new polling that tells you that eight in ten British people believe Britain should never join the euro, in any circumstances, even if it costs Britain influence in Europe. I am going respectfully to disagree.
