  1. What’s in it for them? Just the gravy train for the Estonian “great and good?”

    Will they have to join the worsening bail-outs?

    Why won’t the EU organise an orderly retreat?

    • A rare case of the rats JOINING the sinking ship (alhough the Estonians are good folk — I shouldn’t liken them to rats!). Yes. They will now have to help bail out Greece etc. Welcome to the lunatic world of the eurozone.

  2. Andrew Shakespeare says:

    Isn’t taking measures to join the Euro a condition of accession for all new members of the EU? So does Estonia have a real choice.

    Of course, there is always the Italian option — “So sorry, signore, we had every intention of doing so, but just didn’t get around to it. I assure you we’ll do it just as soon as we can find the time. In the meantime, we’re more than happy to sign any other dotted lines you’ like us us to, as a gesture of our good faith and commitment.”
