One has trouble coming to terms with the idea that some people believe that the euro is not longer legal tender in Portugal, Greece or Italy. But then, most of us will have had experience of the jaw-dropping question from people who one would have thought should know better, asking: "do you think we should join the EU?", when they actually meant the single currency.

Apocryphal I know but my father in law who lives in France, and has done for a decade or more now, until recently kept his UK driving license. He was stopped by the Police for a routine check, apparently the Policeman needed to look up whether the UK was in the EU or not. Just because we're informed, doesn't mean everyone else is.

"Brits are unsurprisingly confused by currency..."

Not at all, I think that they are anything but, this is unsurprised pragmatism. The destiny of the euro, if we say its future is clouded, opaque even - that would be optimistic - Brits are merely drawing an inevitable conclusion.

It does seem an encouraging thought that Brits are subconsiously writing the euro off,it all helps lower the standing of all things EU in the publics eye,and that the EU generally isn't working.
