But obviously not with their own population

So Iceland starts its negotiations to join the EU on Tuesday. Which is daft really as they will not join, well not if they allow their population any say. What is odd is that they even know this before they start,
A European diplomat said that the EU appears to be willing to move very fast with Iceland, even though polls in the country show that public opinion is overwhelmingly opposed to membership.

'We are moving ahead as if everything was going for the best. I do not understand why we are such in a hurry for a country that has had a sudden pro-EU awakening'

Given that it hasn't. Not for nothing is Belgium, the current rotating President the home of surrealism.
