Bollocks! The pound is actually quite strong, the euro OOH is hanging on by it's finger tips, the euro is fast becoming equivalent to "Junk Bond" status - being artificially kept alive by creative accounting within the euro-zone and money from the IMF. I suggest that you listen/read the works of euro realists, or just the non euro-land finance markets, rather than the political propaganda put out by the eurocrats who run the EU (worried as they are about their careers)...
