"Eur-only Saying That To Wind Me Up!"
Jonty and Kara-Louise debated whether Britain should adopt
the Euro as its only currency this afternoon... stop yawning
at the back!
Privately-educated Kara started things off by admitting that
she wasn't keen on the single European currency, which was
taken-up by countries such as France, Italy and Germany in
"We are different and I think it's a shame that the
French have lost their Francs," argued the 22-year-old
However, Jonty disagreed, suggesting that if we did away
with the economical divisions between the nations, it might
make the world a more peaceful place. Blimey, today's enlightenment
task seems to have had an effect already!
With Jonty having claimed that a nation's currency isn't
important to their identity, he added, "Money is a practical
thing really... it serves a practical purpose".
And when asked if he thought the USA should adopt the same
currency as everyone else, Jonty answered in the positive,
going as far as-to suggest that the whole world should adopt
a single currency.
In response, Kara-Lou remarked, "It's like you're trying
to mould the world into one. So why doesn't everyone start
having the same religion, start eating the same food...?"
Jonty basically argued that using different currencies is
impractical, but for people to eat different food or follow
different religions is perfectly practical. However, he was
perhaps forgetting that there's a couple of hundred currencies
in use already, so it evidently is practical.
Anyway, we don't want to lose the pound; for a start Liam
wouldn't have been able to dub Charley 'sound as a pound'
recently and also, nipping to the 'Euro Shop' to buy some
cheap tat just doesn't have the same ring to it!
