I haven’t heard anything from Cameron the PR man about this latest power grab by the EU.
Its one of those transfers of power that he promised us he would oppose, that he would grant us a referendum on.
Dave! where are you?
This from the EU Observer:
The EU has converted 54 out of the European Commission’s 136 foreign delegations into embassy-type missions authorised to speak for the entire union.
The move follows the coming into force last year of the Lisbon Treaty, which has the creation of a new EU diplomatic corps as one of its main provisions. All 136 commission delegations were renamed “EU delegations” on 1 January. But only the 54 placements were at the same time quietly given fresh powers in line with their new names.
The super-delegations have taken on the role previously carried out by the national embassies of the member state holding the six-month EU presidency at any given time.
As such, they now co-ordinate the work of the member states’ bilateral missions to the countries in question. The heads of the 54 delegations are also empowered to speak on behalf of the EU as a whole.
So now is the time to speak up Dave, or does the Albion Alliance have to do your work for you?.
