BBC News

Conservative peer and former deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine has told the BBC that he thinks the UK will join the euro “if it survives”.

The pro-European politician, recently appointed as a government adviser, told the Daily Politics Britain had “failed” to resist European integration.
