Hello. I'll be very grateful for your help.
1)Which article is better in the sentence (maybe both are OK?): "Experts believe the premier has already prepared a/the(?)program aimed at boosting the country's economy"?
2)Do you think "accuse" is possible in the sentences: "They accuse the EU and the US of the collapse of the financial system", "They accuse the EU of the global economic crisis of 2008" or is "blame" the only (or a better) choice?
3)Help me, please, with the correct tenses: "He said the country had won (?)an important victory when it joined / had joined the EU".
Thank you very much for all your help.
1. Using "a" implies that he has settled on one program to implement, but the majority of people don't know which yet. Using "the" implies that he has settled on one program to implement, and the people know which one he means.
2. Either verb works fine.
3. said -- had won -- joined <~~those are fine.
