Will the UK have to adopt the Euro if we stay?

I'm confused confused

Nobody really seems to be talking about it but a bit of digging online seems to suggest that we will.

If we do, will this be a bad thing or not?

No we won't

LittleBearPad Fri 10-Jun-16 00:22:21

No of course we won't.

We are already in the EU but have chosen not to use the Euro, so there is no reason that staying would change this really.
It is possible this country would choose to do so in the future, but that's not as as result of this vote.

No. If we vote Remain things will continue as they are OP. It is only if we vote Leave that things will change. Quite quickly.

The U.K will never switch from The Pound to the Euro.

If the vote is to remain then we just carry on as we are. No Euro, no Schengen. The EU don't get to negotiate on us remaining.

No we won't.

No, definitely not.

Appletreeblossom123 Fri 10-Jun-16 00:55:51

No. OP, do you not think that if we were going to have to join the Euro, the Leave campaign would be singing it from the rooftops?! There would be no need for any digging.

"No. If we vote Remain things will continue as they are OP. It is only if we vote Leave that things will change. Quite quickly."

Abject rubbish if you don't mind me saying.

There is no status quo, no remaining as we are.

We either turn towards the EU and accept an EU superstate with all sovereign powers handed over eventually, or we get out now.

It is a T junction, there is no straight on. Ever closer Union or out.

Spin
Where on earth do you get such ideas from? The EU is not suddenly going to morph into a super state on the 24th June! Any significant change in relationship with the EU would trigger a referendum and possible article 11 withdrawal.
The fact that leaving would negatively affect workers rights, environmental legislation, industrial and technical standardisation and market access, whilst failing to address any of the major issues impacting our country... that's the change we should worry about!

The UK won't join the euro or Schengen if we remain.

Curiously enough, there is more risk of having to joint the Schengen area with a leave vote, since this may lead to rejoining the EEA/EFTA. Norway and Switzerland are inside Schengen.

Oops - meant to say article 50 not 11.

LunaLoveg00d Fri 10-Jun-16 07:24:00

Absolutely not. This has never been on the agenda at all for the UK, and I would imagine it's only something the "Leave" side would be scaremongering about.

nearlyhellokitty Fri 10-Jun-16 07:36:23

No

WellErrr Fri 10-Jun-16 07:43:05

I think we will eventually. Years down the line.

Utter rubbish. We have enshrined in domestic law a trigger for a referendum if there are any further transfers of power. So we can get out then, if we want to, if it happens, rather than giving in to baseless paranoia now.

Project Fear, eh?

BritBrit Fri 10-Jun-16 10:05:20

The UK will not be forced to join the Euro but that doesn't stop a future UK government joining many parts of the Labour party (& a few Tories) still want to join the Euro & David Cameron cannot control a future government. So it is possible we could join in the future

TheNaze73 Fri 10-Jun-16 10:08:31

I don't think we can ever say for sure that we NEVER will.

Can't believe the nonsense/fear diatribe, being spouted by the out campaign.

notagiraffe Fri 10-Jun-16 10:09:22

No. But if we leave then realise it was a mistake and try to rejoin we might.

Palehorse Fri 10-Jun-16 10:30:18

I hope so, make things a lot easier.

girlinacoma Fri 10-Jun-16 16:41:53

Yes, I had wondered why the leave campaign weren't making more of it if it were a possibility. Thanks everyone smile
