The Latvian Prime Minister, Indulis Emsis, has gone to Rome to sign the Constitution tomorrow, as has the President of the country, Vaira Vike-Freiberga. In between the champagne receptions these two will have to have some interesting conversations.
Emsis’s government has just resigned as the parliament voted out his budget with 53 votes against and 39 in favour. Apparently, even some ministers voted against it. So, errm … who is Mr Emsis to sign the new Treaty of Rome?
