I thought I had heard it all. But apparently not.
Belgian foreign minister Karel de Gucht said on Tuesday in Warsaw that treaty changes should be agreed by a qualified majority of member states, rather than by unanimity, AFP reports. He said member states' current veto on treaty revisions is "a recipe for immobility."Immobility in EU parlance being a crime worse than tyranny of course.
What he is actually suggesting is that countries should no longer have the right to decide which treaties to sign. He pretends otherwise:
"Countries belonging to the rejecting minority would, of course, have the right to opt out."Nice. The EU constitution contained within it the voting structure for future. Tell me exactly how a country opts out of the voting structure agreed by the others?
Doesn't work does it.
