To the county of Adam Smith

I am grateful to Alex Singleton for inviting me to last night's meeting of The University of St Andrews Liberty Club. The guest speaker was Bill Emmott, editor of The Economist. I was able to ask Mr Emmott a question about Britain's relationship with the rest of the EU in the context of the Iraq war. In the event of a satisfactory outcome, he thought that Tony Blair might well call for a referendum on entry into the Euro within eighteen months.
