My view is just not their view

I want to put firmly on the record that the view of the "sherpas" of the European Parliament on todays paper entitled "Towards a real Economic and Monetary Union - Building a capacity to decide" is in no way my view.  Indeed some of the wording could be more Building a capacity to divide. 

Quote "the Euro is the currency of the European Union and the European Parliament is the parliament of the European Union. The European Parliament, therefore, it is the parliament of the Euro."  

This is a very outrageous thing to say as there are 10 countries who don't use the Euro but are in the EU and the single market.   Talk about feeling bullied about!
