Implementing the Constitution

Now many of you may be under the false impression that unless we vote yes next year, the constitution will just remain an expense exercise in committee work. You would be wrong:
Is all EU legislation compatible with the Charter of Fundamental Rights? A new system will soon systematically screen proposed legislation for compatibility with fundamental rights. The new Commissioners Group on Fundamental Rights, Anti-discrimination and Equal Opportunities, set up in October last year, will ensure that the results of this screening procedure are taken into account.
Its not yet legally in force, probably never will be, but they are implementing it anyway. Did anyone say accountability?
