    Default Could Bulgaria be the first country to leave the EU?

    Well with severe financial penalties on the way for failing to sort out corruption might we see the departure of bulgaria? I have to ask why we allowed her in! Corruption should have been substantially eliminated first.

    Greenland left the then EEC in 1985.
    Lucky them.

    They are doing very well, thanks very much.

    Good luck to Bulgaria.

    And what a cheek from the EU. It is so corrupt its accounts haven't been signed off for the last 13 years.

    For Heaven's sake, the entire EU Commission had to resign at one stage.

    Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. The EU, Bulgaria, they're both corrupt as hell.

    What corruption exactly are you referring to?
    Ireland interests are best secured within a more dynamic EU. Vote YES to Lisbon.

    Vitiating democracy in the nation states of the EU - pressuring countries to deny their people's referenda

    Lacking transparency in spending - persecuting and hounding those who blew whistle on lack of control of budget - failing to have accounts signed off -

    should be a sure sign of corruption. Don't you agree?

    No, no I don't.
    Especially when you describe it like that.

    Greenland is not a State but a "self-governing Danish province" according to the big W...
    i.e. not sovereign..

    Show me something incorrect here and I will correct it right away. Otherwise....

    Perhaps a distraction from EU corruption?

    We, Eurosceptic? By that do you mean we the EU, including you. Glad to have you aboard. Time to change your name and your avatar.

    Guess we'll have to play along with Bulgaria or it will be ingested by mother Russia.
