    That's my opinion too but I freely admit I haven't a clue when it comes to foretelling the future

    Sterling is a stand alone currency which some of us may have historical problems with but those problems do not include trying to be a one size fits all currency that means little countries like ours are at best left in the lurch and at worst saddled with other peoples debts.

    Our trade is more diversified than when we had the link with sterling, it's fine for companies who trade mainly with UK but no great advantage for those who trade in dollars or with the euro area.

    What are you on about?

    That documentary shows us exactly why we should be planning to abolish the Euro.

    I decided to blog about this.

    A possible return of common sense Irish Liberty Forum

    I'm a big fan of McWilliams and can only congratulate him on his frankness and honesty with all of his contributions.

    I know nothing about economics but could the Dollar not be considered?

    I would consider the Dollar myself, at least for an intern period.

    I am also a fan of McWilliams, but more from a Eurosceptic point of view than a Libertarian point of view.
