I am a published Euro-skeptic and have been skeptical about the EU here and at Current Intelligence many times. But here's me hoping that the EU finally passes a key test that it might actually have some standards.
Hungary is asking for a line of credit from the EU, which is really kind of funny: credit involves credibility, but using one's super-majority to up-end existing institutions indicates one is not particularly constrained. So, will the EU follow its supposed standards and deny Hungary credit at a time where the Hungarian economy is weak but its politicians are in a very strong position?
I would not bet on the EU spine holding up, but I certainly hope it does. How are the Spew readers betting?
