“PININ’ for the FJORDS?!? What kind of talk is that?”

RTE with, perhaps, its tongue firmly in its cheek. suggests that supporters of the EU Constitutional Treaty can take some solace from Latvia.. who said “Yes”. Hmmm.. Never mind France, or the Netherlands, then? John Fay picks up on the increasingly appropriate analogy – “Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Blue..” Meanwhile EU Commission President José Barroso has warned EU leaders not to abandon the treaty yet – “I think it will not be wise [for] leaders to come with new initiatives or unilateral decisions.” – “‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on!”

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
