Brussels shows its iron fist

People who still believed that the EU is about freedom lost one more illusion when EU commissioner Joaquin Almunia declared that Brussel has the right to force Sweden to adopt the Euro coin despite the negative referendum a few years ago.

It seems that Brussel is getting a bit nervous now that the new members seem to become less unenthousiastic about adopting the Euro. Poland and Hungary have already anounced referenda.
