Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Aren't you forgetting a 30-year worldwide political trend.

But that gets to our disagreement on the EU Constitution - I'm saying that the EU Commission + Parliament, despite all their flaws, were the only institutions able - and willing - to take on big corporates and win - and not having the legitimacy of a people-backed vote to back them robbed them of their ability to do any meaningful regulation, as they could have done. Instead they just went with the ideological flow.

Deeply ironic that the French destroyed Europe's ability to do decent technocratic regulation of business.
