I read with interest and considerable patience George Pitcher’s comments on the possibilities of Dixons acquiring Darty (MW September 19).
I admit I found it difficult following some of his arguments, but his main concern appears to be the inconvenience of converting the euro to the pound and vice versa, a nano-second on a computer.
No mention of the major issue of the euro, one interest rate to fit all, the democratic deficit, the out-of-control and profligate Brussels bureaucracy, the pension timebombs, the abandonment of the nation state, the loss of control of our fiscal policy.
Mr Pitcher trivialises one of the major issues of our time.
