Getting off the iceberg to be on the Titanic. What are they thinking of.

I went to Lithuania in about 1996 with a few friends and we met the deputy leader of the equivalent of the Thatcherite Tories (it's a small country) and we talked about the European Union and asked whether he was in favour of joining. "Of course". The point was that the Russians would always regard them as part of Greater Russia and the alternative to cosying up with Germany - and by extension the US - was to rely on Russia permanently being (relatively) benign.

Compared to the UK these Baltic states are smaller, don't have strong capital markets and are right on the doorstep of the most imperialist power of the last sixty years. So what if they tie their economy to the Germans, it's choosing which empire you want to belong to.
