Albania’s dream on joining the European Union in big trouble, according to the estimation of Miroslav Lajcak, EU negotiator for the Albanian political crisis, reported magazine Economist on Friday.

Albania’s dream on joining the European Union in big trouble, according to the estimation of Miroslav Lajcak, EU negotiator for the Albanian political crisis, reported magazine Economist on Friday.

Lajcak is trying to get Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisa and the opposition Leader Edi Rama to reach an agreement, warning that they will be held responsible for the mess, “regardless to what they say” unless they agree before the local election in early May.

In Albania, according to press media, political relations were not normal ever since the elections in June 2009, when Rama accused Berisa for cheating in the elections. The opposition boycotted Parliament sessions, and hunger strikers camped in fornt of Berisa’s head quarters.

That was an indecent behaviour for a country that just joined NATO and submitted a request to join the EU, so both sides were exposed to pressure from abroad.

Now they have started again. Due to a newly created situation, Jim Steinberg Deputy U.S. Secretary of State, visited Tirana on February 25, and in regards to that, the Economist magazine estimates that Lajcak’s ton indicates that friends of Albania from abroad are losing their patience.

The latest problems appeared in January, when former minister of economy Dritan Prifti gave one television network a video showing Prime Minister Ilir Meta talking about a large bribe. Meta discarded accusation as false, but resigned his position.

Albania, the longer you keep out of the European Union the longer you will retain your freedom. Membership of the EU will be a disaster for you, just as it is for the United Kingdom. The majority of people in the UK want to get out of the EU. We have lost our political and economic freedoms. But our so called leaders are scared of upsetting the dictatorship that is the EU.

Because of our membership of the EU, Britain is heading for social unrest.

So, Albania, the country I love, do not join. Keep out.
