Has the ongoing recession pushed the UK closer to Europe?

In a move which is sure to court controversy in the UK, a number of EU senior ministers have been quoted as suggesting the UK is ready to adopt the euro. It seems as though ministers in Europe are using the ongoing recession to try and hammer away at the UK door which has been firmly closed for many years. There are concerns that the UK government may well be susceptible to a new welcome into the inner sanctum of the euro.

Not only will it cause controversy with other leading political parties, but it will also reignite the demands for a national referendum on the euro to see exactly how the UK population feels on the subject. Many will recall that a referendum was promised and never delivered with the Labour Party using a technical approach to suggest the new "treaty" was not a treaty in the popular sense of the term.

This is probably the last thing which the UK community need at this moment in time as they fight on a number of different fronts to ensure the UK does not collapse under a mountain of debt and a slowing economy.
