Report Europe Tells Britain Not To Ask For Help In A Crisis in House prices and the economy Posted May 13, 2010 I think they are trying to deflect attention away from the Euro. For sure thats thier game but it wont happen now that the tories are on the watch. The markets are going to have more confidence in sterling as the days roll by. The tories know the pound is on borrowed time and they will get to work in double quick time. Were going to be ok as long as the public sector ?workers dont grind the country to a halt ... thats the worry for me.
