Too Big to Move

Europhiles are always complaining that letting countries keep vetos in certain areas leads to inertia. The EU is unable to develop. Take those Poles for instance:

Last week Poland reinforced the worst fears of the EU’s founding members, as it fought a week-long and ultimately successful battle to secure special value added tax arrangements for its building sector.
No word whatsover on why we should all charge the same VAT on everything. Europhiles don't consider such things.
There is frustration at the unwieldy decision-making process in the EU, especially where the rule of unanimity applies, including tax, the EU budget and foreign policy.
Simple solution. The EU steers clear of those areas. We don't need to harmonise them at all.
