Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well, off the bat here are the demands I don't want the Spanish government to agree to

  • The removal of all eight self-amending articles including the simplified revision procedure in Article 48;
  • The removal of Article 46a giving the EU a single legal personality;
  • Substantial amendments to aspects of the Common Foreign and Security Policy;
These are having their cake and eating it, too:

  • Substantial amendments to aspects of the Common Foreign and Security Policy;
  • Substantial amendments to the section of Common Defence and Security Policy;
  • A new protocol on neutrality;
If Ireland gets a protocol on neutrality, why do they need to amend the CFSP and the Defence and Security Policy? Might as well opt out of them with the protocol.
