Blair sitting on fence AGAIN over Euro

Blair will still not give a firm commitment to join the Euro or have a referendum to let the people decide to adopt the single currency and break the bank of Englands stranglehold over business affairs. A government spokesman said "The Prime Minister is very happy to put his name to any campaign thatís about Britain engaging constructively in Europe for the benefit of Europe, and equally happy to put his name to the front of any campaign that promotes the sensible, pragmatic position we have taken on the single currency."

IE. He'll sit and pontificate until hell freezes over and currency dealers have raped the Euro into submission, then say 'Oh, the economic conditions were never right for us....'
