In the Queen’s speech there was an interesting contribution by Lord Owen. He warned of a growing crisis that will pose a major challenge to the UK. If the Euro does disintegrate then we will be badly affected but if it continues it will only do so as part of an ever closer union.
In other speeches outside the House Lord Mandelson and Ed Balls MP have made similar points. The UK will finally have to choose – are we part of an ever closer union or are we outside?
