It would be a socialist and a Labour politician that want to work together to destroy whatever sovereignty and independence Albania currently possesses.

After the end of Soviet rule Albania degenerated into a mobster run dictatorship. Lots of people lost money to a giant nationwide Ponzi scheme.

They are a basket case nation that I believe makes most of their money from organized criminal activity.

Would Germany ever agree to allow such a country into the EU knowing full well that they would have to bankroll it and allow any Albanian that wanted to to enter their country without a Visa?

Well, if they are broke and don’t have a constitution with a bill of rights, they will fit in as another Third World Country in the European Union of Third World Countries.

Albania is almost 60% muslim. So Albania's entrance to the E.U. can only improve Europe's overall security situation...not.

As a side note, I wonder how many millions Blair will be paid under the table for his part in all this. One can only hope that as part of the agreement Blair must permanently move to Albania.

Europe shouldn’t want Albania to join the EU... unless they want more of the same kind of people who invaded Kosovo.

Yes, and that’s precisely why. Besides, they already apply Schengen selectively.

He’s jumping at the chance. Remember, this is the guy who thought he was getting Herman van Rompuy’s current job, at one time.

According to the CIA Albania is 70% Muslim 20% Albanian Orthodox and 10% Roman Catholic.

I think the EU would want Albania so they can say they are not rejecting Turkey because it is a Muslim country and the EU is not an exclusive post-Christian Atheist-Pagan Club.

Interesting factoid; Jim and John Belushi are ethnic Albanians from immigrant parents.
