Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the answer, as I have been arguing for some time, is to abolish the commission and replace it with a government responsible to the European Parliament. The European Council should lose its executive role and become something like the German Bundesrat.

The political significance of the European government and Parliament will only increase once they are clearly more important than national governments and parliaments.

Unfortunately the chance of any member state agreeing to my modest proposals is about zero.
