This is what gets my goat. While the EU gets excited about the democratic finger in Ireland, they forget about structural issues such as corruption. I read about Romania in this week's Economist. And it was gobsmacking. But then, we already know that the EU itself is heaving with corruption. But this is the sad part, for it not to fix these maggots inside EU means that it will become even more irrelevant. And thus the seeds of the EU destruction will be sowed by the EU itself.
