I take most of the Telegraph comments seriously, they’re on a par with the Guardian for telling the truth as they see it, but not anything from Ambrose Pritchard Evans who has been consistently and drastically wrong for the past 20 years.
For a long 20 years he has studiously copied and pasted articles critisizing the EMU, yes, the EMU and later the Euro, and has predicted its demise hundreds of times over the years. In the economists world, he is the joker in the pack, he gets it more wrong than the rest of them put together.
The Telegraph took him on in their eurosceptic euphoria of the early nineties, but have since softened their stance in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, but still wheel out Ambrose to satisfy the ownership and he invariably attracts great numbers of comments from the toxic part of the Tories.
He’s actually quite a funny man.
