Considering his enthusiasm for the EU when he was chancellor and Howe foreign secretary I find his sudden damascene conversion more than a little astonishing. I believe he and Howe threatened Margaret Thatcher with their joint resignations at one EU summit, a quarter of a century later and he's advocating withdrawal.
His decision that the pound should shadow the deutchmark damns him as any sort of financial guru, or any other sort of expert.
The only useful thing he ever did was to produce Nigella.
This will the future of Europe like in business, Centralisation, De-Centralisation and it will keep Consultants in business forever who will ride and rape the trend, Centralise, De-centralise, Centralise, De-Centralise....and breathe.
The bloated old ponce didn't perhaps get us into the EU, but he did get us deeper into it! He's right though, if we end up paying the full monty into the set in concrete and strangely not negotiable French agro subvention of unwashed peasants scam, then we might as well spray agent orange on all of France and save ourselves a fortune!
