Should the UK join the Euro?

The pound’s plummeted against the Euro, so it's not far from £1=€1 (see Travel Money Max for the latest rate).

Is it time we joined the European currency? If so the rate would be fixed, and possibly at a higher exchange rate than the one we get now, or should we stick with the pound, which could bounce back? Remember it isn’t just about travel money, but has a massive impact on imports and exports.
