The Foy stood on the burning deck

As Timmy points out Baron Mandelson of Foy is quoted in the Mail today swearing, that black is indeed white.
Lord Mandelson triggered incredulity last night by insisting Britain should join the euro – just as the currency struggled with the worst crisis in its history.
The Business Secretary played down turmoil in the eurozone by claiming the single currency had been a ‘remarkable success’ and said it was in Britain’s long term interests to sign up in the future.
Which is extraordinary. The last man in Britain that thinks this is a sane objective. But there again he is in receipt of a Commissioners pension of 70,000 Euros a year. To keep which he must “upholding the interests of the European Union”.

What is more with the increasing certainty of a slide in the Euro value, even against our debauched pound then he needs to talk up the tottering currency just to keep him in the manner to which he has become ermined.

To whom, one wonders, does this Quisling owe his allegience: Her Majesty, or his paymanters in Brussels?

Hereward you wakeful chap, to ask the question is to answer it.

I'm surprised that it has taken him so long to suggest this; It is just another piece of the current scorched earth policy.
