Fainting in Coyles An occasional letter from the
Heart of Euroville

Thanks to Peter (Pigs) Briffa for pointing out this piece of tartery from Joan Collins no less
"So Blair is pulling a Mugabe and rigging the referendum on the euro. His plans to allow 700,000 non-citizens living in the UK (culled, no doubt, from the NHS bed waiting-list) to vote on whether or not we must have this pesky little currency are cynical to say the least....So watch out, Britain, for if this currency, which looks and feels like stage money, and with which I find it impossible to differentiate between a f1 coin, a 50 or 20 cent coin, comes storming our Bastille, things are going to get much more depressing than they already are."
