You're right. Perhaps we should assume that politicans will do the opposite of what's logical. For example, the Netherlands has commissioned two FTT studies, one from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and one from the Dutch Central Bank. Both studies have been very negative on the FTT, even calling it a "bad idea." So, from this we should assume that the Netherlands will soon issue a statement supporting the FTT. Perhaps Sweden will change their minds, too.
Ok, Borg (and Cameron) maybe not, but indeed it annoys me that despite all those negative advice and studies, Dutch government still hasn't spoken out loud against the FTT. Even though I can't imagine they would support it, it would be nice if they could finally confirm this.
