    A very interesting view on the subject matter, I hadn’t actually thought about that angle. I would really like the EU to show some balls, but sadly, they’ll probably want to align with America. I don’t think situation 3 is credibly, even though I want it to happen rather badly. Even option 2 I would consider a stretch.

    Then again my faith in politics is generally between rock bottom and 3 miles under the ocean floor.

    “I wonder what happens if a country within the EU denies him asylum, and another, let’s say Germany, does grant him a safe place to stay. Public opinion of Snowden is fairly positive. There are no official numbers to these claims, but I imagine there’s a great majority in each and every country who supports him and his cause. What if a country, against the wishes of their citizens, denies him asylum. What does Germany do whenever another EU-member denies him asylum?”

    Figures from infratest dimap published yesterday on show actually there is no majority for granting asylum to Snowdon. (35 for; 58 against)

Please, tell me why I'm wrong.
