Who: The EU
“Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) represents a major step in the integration of EU economies. It involves the coordination of economic and fiscal policies, a common monetary policy, and a common currency, the euro. Whilst all 28 EU Member States take part in the economic union, some countries have taken integration further and adopted the euro. Together, these countries make up the euro area.”(1)
If the UK stays in the European Union it will be forced into further integration of the Economic and Monetary Union.
THE CASE FOR A #FREEBRITAIN
"Unless we leave the European Union we will be forced into ever closer monetary union. We know this because the European Commission released a report entitled ‘Completing Europe's Economic and Monetary Union’ which pledged the EU to “complete EMU at the latest by 2025.” This report, written by the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker states that in order to complete EMU “concrete measures of a more far-reaching nature would be agreed to complete EMU’s economic and institutional architecture.”(2)
