ECB glorifies 10 years of the Euro : Timing is everything

This video has been made at some cost (looking at the graphics) to celebrate the 10th anniversary over the Euro notes and coins by the European Central Bank. It must be noted that the comments section has been disabled - I cannot imagine why.

The disembodied voice is placed somewhere of the coast of the Azores, and the whole thing is just utterly ill timed and ill-advised. It makes the priceless observation that the notes are 'thicker in parts', bit like the Eurozone.

What I have learnt from this is that until the 1st of March Drachma are still legal in Greece.

Chaps, don't get rid of them now for God's sake, you might well need them soon enough.

Does the left hand not know what the right hand is doing anywhere in the EU?

This useful information from EU Business

Adoption of the euro: The euro banknotes and coins were introduced in Greece on 1 January 2002, after a transitional period of one year when the euro was the official currency but only existed as 'book money'. The dual circulation period – when both the Greek drachma and the euro had legal tender status – ended on 28 February 2002.

Exchange of former national currency: The Τράπεζα της Ελλάδος (National Central Bank of Greece) exchanged drachma coins until 1 March 2004 and will continue to exchange drachma banknotes until 1 March 2012.

Did you actually see how many immigrants there weren't, what's this cuntin' shite! It's because of the EU we have so many.

I personally couldn't stomach much of this cuntin' shite past 1min in, how much money did that advert cost, as you say, tax, tax, tax.

Fuck that! If the EU worked you wouldn't need to be reminded, what a fucking mess!

Nine days left to save the €uro!

That simplistic film must have been aimed at schoolchildren or perhaps they are just displaying their usual contempt for us.

I notice they constantly refer to 'Europe', no mention of the EU.
