To quote Lewis Carroll:
“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.
It will be interesting to see how the other initial dissenters fare: Hungary, Sweden and the Czech Republic. Likewise even if they do all sign up, who will be the first to “do a Greece” and completely renege on their responsibilities. Probably Greece, I would guess.
Having said that, if I was a German taxpayer I would be very disgruntled today.
** PS: this would be an excellent time to call a general election.
