Denmark must join competitiveness pact - minister
16:09, Saturday 12 March 2011
COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Euro-zone outsider
Denmark must join the new competitiveness pact agreed by euro countries
to avoid being excluded from crucial decisions about its future, a leading Danish government official said on Saturday.
A Brussels meeting of euro zone leaders agreed on Friday on a competitiveness pact for the single currency area proposed by Germany and France last month.
"This pact is very wise," Justice Minister Lars Barfoed, the Conservative party leader who is also deputy prime minister, told reporters on the sidelines of a party conference.

They probably know it doesn't make sense.

The EU does not really like Denmarks enviable position - access to Eurozone area but nothing else to do with it. They pay for this 'privilege', but must think it worth it.

We are still without our referendum on the EU. The fear mongers have persistently won over the actual arguments which favour withdrawal. I don't think BMW, VW, Audi, Miele, citroen, peugeot, or any other major exporter to the UK would want to stop sending their goods here. We send less to them as we don't make very much. The Eu would not dare put up trade barriers to the UK as they would lose more if we put tariffs on their imported goods. It would not happen. Wish we were like Denmark or even better, out of the EU.

A good read on Denmark adn the Euro: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denmark_and_the_euro

Along with us, Denmark are the only EU member that will not be forced into the Euro (I always thought Sweden too, but according to the link above they will have to join at some stage).

However, there is a referendum expected sometime this year. It's interesting that every poll in the last year has found the majority saying 'No' to joining.

The Swedes seemed keen to acept the Euro during 2008 before reverting back to a no.

Switzerland has it even better than Denmark.
