Quote of the day

Quatremer:
Si la zone euro éclate, l’Union européenne n’y survivra pas et la guerre pourrait rapidement faire son retour sur le vieux continent. Le ministre polonais des Finances, dont le pays, qui n’est pas membre de l’euro, assure la présidence tournante de l'UE, Jacek Rostowski

Translation:
If the eurozone breaks up, the European Union will not survive it and war could quickly return to the Old Continent. So says the finance minister of Poland, a country that is not a member of the euro.

FLG wishes he could effectively translate the sarcasm. There's just something about the use of "dont le pays" that really tickles FLG's funny bone.
