what´s all that about then eh
It works on the same level as a Hollywood film pitch: If you can't condense it down to one paragraph and make an idiot understand it, then it doesn't work.
The European constitution was an 900 page paper-weight that two seperate populations rejected outright despite having no idea what it actually was/did/said. It was subsequently bought back, essentially unchanged, save for it's new branding as a 'treaty'. Most people still have no idea what it's actual purpose is.
It's like Ocean Finance, seeking to consolidate lots of separate bureaucracy into one big bureaucracy.
And then there's some other stuff which probably isn't all that important. This comprises about 90% of the 'treaty'.
I will not doubt be able to make some suggestions to them subsequently. Im quite dissappointed that they havnt asked me.
I did once mention to an MEP that I would welcome the opportunity to provide intelligent 'lay' comments about anything euro the would affect 'lay' people.
Obviously he must have lost my address
I mean, we are all subject to a whole host of rules that we dont know, they would enforce them whether we knew or not, they would get their agents to enforce stuff on our ass, whether this is euro or Uk stuff wont make much difference at the point of enforcement
