ALL EU members to adopt Euro


Jean-Claude Juncker is now believed to be set on ensuring each member state only uses the euro after the people of Britain voted in favour of a Brexit on June 23.

The president of the commission also seems set on rushing exit negotiations after claiming they should begin as soon as possible.

But it seems Mr Juncker is also keen to accelerate European integration by making eight remaining nations use the euro.

Those nations are Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Sweden.

German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung claimed there are plans underfoot to accelerate the “completion” of the monetary union.

They say these will soon be announced by Mr Juncker.

And this move could be aided after the commission placed its current vice president in the vacant space left by the UK’s EU commissioner Lord Hill.

He resigned following the historic EU referendum result.

Latvian Valdis Dombrovskis took his place as the European Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union, but will also keep his role as the current European Commissioner for the euro.

Despite some panic with the pound plummeting and rising across markets, Leave campaigners are insisting the right decision was made by the public.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage said Mr Juncker’s recent actions speak volumes as to why Britain breaking from the union was the right decision for the nation.

He said: “I’m pleased I played the theme to the ‘great escape’ on my tour of the country.”

Ukip employment spokeswoman Jane Collins MEP said that there was “clearly an urgent need for leadership in the UK which the Conservative government was not providing.”

She added: “With Juncker making it clear that he wants ever closer union we need to take the mandate of the British people forward and start the negotiating process to become an independent trading nation once again with control over its own future and its own currency.

“We only need to look at the impact of the Euro on unemployment, particularly for young people, in the southern EU countries to see what a disaster that currency is.

“Now is the time for a cross party group of negotiators to take this next step for the future of our country.”
