In my title I paraphrase a favourite expression used - constantly! - by 'SoD' who as I write is actually on his way back from mitteleuropa. It refers to an article by A E-P in today's Telegraph and the heading is:
IMF admits a disastrous love affair with the euro and apologises to Greece
I did warn 'SoD' not to be entranced with slim, elegant, older, French ladies with perma-tans but he never pays any attention to his dear old dad! Anyway, A E-P goes on to quote from a coruscating report by the IMF's top watchdog committee which states amongst other things that the top staff misled their own bosses because they were so fanatically in favour of the euro and that they failed to grasp the elemental concept of currency theory. Read the whole thing but if you are Greek do try not to vomit over your keyboard!
Thank God we are on our way out of it - and no, please don't thank me for my sterling efforts tramping the lanes of Zouth Zummerzet in all weathers to deliver my Brexit leaflets, just send the usual 'readies' in a plain envelope!
