Poor economic performance may leave the UK with no choice but to join the euro if it wishes to remain in the EU | British Politics and Policy at LSE
In light of the Eurozone crisis, many commentators in the UK maintain that the Eurozone and the EU are doomed. Recalling the UK's desire to remain apart from embryonic attempts towards European integration in the 1950s, Tim Bale argues that, should the euro survive, the UK may be unable to resist further integration. With a relatively poor outlook for growth in the coming decade, the UK may be soon faced with a choice: join the euro to remain in the EU, or face complete marginalisation
Now an alternative might be to take an economic path, less serious, but that would never do. but it may become a choice that has to be made.
