EU enlargement!

one of the few articles which states that sometimes it is the public that is wrong, not the politicians!

  1. Interesting article, although it falls down when in it's hypocracy that the writer is so worked up about people discusing Europe always under "false" premises, whilst simulataneously making the grand assumption that all enlargement must be good.

    Some people may call that a false premise also.

    "an unequivocal green light in October for Romania"

    …really?? Even with all the reports of human rights problems. Yes, the situation may have improved, but unequivocal?

    It's also interesting that an article about the public perseption of widening the EU membership should only fleetingly mention Turkey, surely the most controversial candidate country. I hope he wasn't avoiding this case to make his point.
