Thank you, Chris. I overreacted to rudeness and dragged myself into the gutter while doing it.
Most of it has been said (back on the topic), but I would mention that I have a book on my shelves, Dreams From My Father, written by Obama, which I’ve read and it’s uncomfortable reading for anyone who still dreams of a special relationship between the UK and the US.
If that special relationship no longer exists, then as a small nation we can’t exist without trading with our neighbours, and 50% of our exports already go that way. Had we joined a common trading currency, we, and our neighbours would be better off, and the Euro would be much stronger than it is.
