Talking of which of course brings up that contentious subject of the EU, we are federalists and I see little barrier left to us aligning with the Euro is the intelligent route of staying in is taken. I am constantly horrified by the little englander statements of life in cloud cuckoo land, if they really imagine we can live in isolation they are in need of medical attention. To whom would we align ourselves, the USA hmm perhaps not, Russia, really - cheap trolleybuses and trams perhaps then China, wow that stalwart of liberal traditions but it is safe to walk around at night and little hassle if you tow the line. I really do feel that the EU and the British executive failed to point out the benefits it has given us like generations growing in relative peace certainly in west europe and stability even when the greedy ones have wrecked the banking business. Freedom of travel and access, laws to protect workers and disabled, citizen rights, food standards, supporting local food descriptions, all manner of things to improve our world. We could argue against the bad aspects from within, we have several natural partners in many areas. The one thing the Tories will do is line the pockets of the rich even more . Don't expect even the fascist UKIP types to be lining folk up on boats 'to go home' any time soon. The appetite in the EU for restricting immigration has grown and can be developed sensibly and humanely.
