Re: Pass me the Kleenex

Very true, the moment you sign up for a single currency, you pass taxes around that currency to the central area as well. Only right if they control the currency they have a way of determining central tax and interest that might affect that currency.

Can't have every EU government setting their own versions of that single currency.

Not sinister as they quite clearly got rid of the irish pound in favour of the Euro. So they kind of walked wide eyed into this. Cook is just panicking at the fact he got caught and will have to pay. But didn't Trump state he might allow them to transfer all that wealth back into the US at a very low one off payment? (might have dreamt it)
