If you just declare new drachmas tomorrow and start issuing script, anybody who’s got euro will recognize that as real money and will want to preserve their euros, so you’re going to be fighting an uphill battle immediately. If you try to do it more gradually through a parallel currency and hope that people adjust and you then legislate that payments should be done digitally rather than through cash and it’s always going to use the new unit of account, yes, in principle you can get there, but it’s not easy, and it’s not easy to foresee how it works out. I dont really have any strong opinions on which one is better, because I do think these are philosophical more than practical exercises at this point.

The Government said they disagree because of the cost. The cost would be 3.7 billion. So not insignificant when the Chancellor made it clear there is not much money to go round, my sense at the moment is while there are Tory backbenchers who are concerned it doesn't right now have the heat in this to force the Government to back down, but I think ministers are working hard to stave off a rebellion. And the Prime Minister was saying that this wouldn't make a difference to people who already get benefits, is that true?
