Two More Members

Now we can look forward to having two more members of the club.
The European Parliament gave a green light on Wednesday for Bulgaria and Romania to join the EU, removing the last obstacle for the Balkan countries to sign the accession treaty on April 25.
With the exception of Albania and the former Yugoslavia, that’s all of the Soviet Union’s former satellites. Entry is not guaranteed however:
Their entry may be delayed until 2008 if they drag their feet in implementing reforms on fighting rampant corruption
Is it only me, or does that sentence strike you as funny. These applicants might be rejected for being too corrupt. Why would they even want to join if there was no chance of getting rich off the flow of gravy from Brussels.
