Eurozone: Will Hutton on UK joining euro currency

Despite the turmoil over the last few weeks, economist Will Hutton explained why he remains a keen euro supporter and still thinks the UK could join the currency once day.

He said Europe was on the way to being "fully two-tier" and Britain could end up getting left behind. He still believes the UK will regret not having joined and will by 2020 be banging on the door to do so.

Will Hutton and This Week also explored the topic in a studio debate with Andrew Neil, Michael Portillo and Alan Johnson.
