Why must taxpayers bail out the Euro?

Ian Lucas makes a good point about the nonsense of spending an additional £9.3 billion to help the IMF bail out the Euro (Letters, July 15).

Of course it is not just the Euro that those in Brussels are desperate to save.

The whole rotten edifice of the EU (to which, incidentally, we contribute an incredible £48 million per day) depends on the survival of the Euro. Failing this, the gravy train will hit the buffers.

We stayed out of the Eurozone for the very good reason that it could never work with one interest rate for a number of diverse economies.

Why we are now expected to support this flawed concept with taxpayers money I fail to understand.
