Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I've said before, I am coming round to the view that the 'turf battles' and many other aspects of the EU bureaucracy that distribute 'power' are  good. The tiny 6.3% admin costs of the EU also show that 'distributed processing' can also be cost-efficient.

The apparent redundancy of many different committees addressing the same problems is also good. etc etc. The more like the brain it gets, the better imo ;-)

The greatest danger we face in the EU is the establishment of rigid top-down hierarchies.

You can't be me, I'm taken
