And there’s where it stands at xmas. The diplomats are taking a well earned break for the holidays having gotten themselves this far. Germany despite everyone’s best efforts is spending it’s holidays in Denmark. Italy is enjoying cheap plonk in the costa del dread pirate joe, Russia has gone North to take the icy waters, Austria and Turkey are getting to know each other better. England is ruling the waves and France is doing what it does best 🙂
My predictions in a sealed envelope of the eventual winner is looking more and more shaky. More of this next year.
