As the International Herald Tribune reports, "chief EU cheerleader" Finland has a pretty sad cheering section at the moment. The once pro-EU, chronically insecure Finns are supposed to assume the rotating presidency in July, but Euroskeptics likely outnumber supporters. "True Finns" party leader Timo Soini, who conducts anti-Brussels pep rallies from a megaphone while standing on a crate, finds an upside to EU sprawl, telling the IHT, "It may be good if the EU gets so big that it can no longer function—it will be like a rat with its hypothalamus removed, who keeps eating until it explodes."
