LDV readers say: Clegg and Huhne right to down-play UK Euro entry

It seems so long ago, but in fact it’s just over a week since Lib Dem Voice asked our readers whether Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne were right to signal that that the party is going to drop its passionate commitment to campaigning for the UK to sign up to the European single currency. As Chris put it, “The truth is, within the British debate, it’s completely off the radar and there is simply no point in regarding it as a runner worth investing political time in.”

Here’s what you thought of their move in response to the question: Are Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne right to say that campaigning for the UK to join the Euro is no longer a Lib Dem priority?

Here’s what you said:

* Yes, they’re right – it’s not going to happen so let’s not get bogged-down in it – 63% (233) of all votes
* No, they’re not – the Lib Dems should be making much more of our pro-European beliefs – 34% (126)
* Don’t know – 2% (8)
Total Votes: 367. Poll ran: 14th-22nd September 2008

Don’t forget there’s still time to vote in this week’s poll, asking Who do you think would be the most effective next leader of the Labour party?
