Bulgaria, Romania: New EU Members

Europhobia writes about Europe's muted reaction to the arrival of the EU's two new members on Jan. 1: “Personally, I reckon the lack of coverage and debate is thanks to a profound sense of embarrassment. It’s hard, after all, to feel much enthusiasm about the addition of those particular bastions of economic might, and it’s far too late now to pipe up with ‘erm.. hang on a minute, chaps – are you SURE we want to let those two in to the club?'”
