Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer

Tony Blair treats the Rik Mayall portrayal of Hitler in an anti-Euro ad as a "joke." But Mayall is surely correct in telling us that the Euro would lead to one country with one leader. Of course Mr Blair hopes to be "the one". Perhaps the comparison with Hitler is a bit overdone - Blair would never introduce Identity Cards, would he?
