6 out of 10 of the French regret the loss of the French Franc to join the Eurozone.
In a poll published by French website Atlantico, it was found that 62% of French people now regretted the loss of the French Franc. In 2002, just 39% regretted the loss of the French Franc.
Much of the dissatisfaction at the changeover to the Euro lies in the belief that it caused prices to skyrocket, and the feelings of discontent only grew during the economic downturn which has plagued Europe.
The new results are further proof of Eurosceptic feelings spreading across the Eurozone.
Nikki Sinclaire, who is the We Demand a Referendum MEP for the West Midlands said,
“The Euro is a failed political project which has been pushed upon the people of Europe with disastrous consequences.
The Euro simply does not work, but time and time again the EU chooses to put its head in the sand
It is telling that a country like France is now seeing a rise in Eurosceptic feeling”.
In a poll commissioned by the We Demand a Referendum Party, 56% of people said they wanted a referendum on the UK’s EU membership, while over 60% of Conservative voters now want David Cameron to call a referendum on this vital issue.
Nikki Sinclaire added, “2013 will see the EU discuss bailouts for further Eurozone countries. How telling it is that the UK, a country from outside the Eurozone, is ridiculed and threatened yet we are expected to contribute to bailout payments because of this failing currency.
It is time for the UK to take a stand and to ask its people once and for all whether they want to be a part of the European Union at all. Let the people decide”.
