Service Deal

They say they have clinched a deal.

EU competitiveness ministers have sealed a deal over a new Services Directive aimed at opening up the sector over the coming years.
But what does this mean?
Crucially, the directive will not – as originally envisaged by the proposal – allow service providers to work in other member states according to the rules of their home country. Instead, the directive simply tells member states to give service providers free access to their country and allow them to freely exercise their business.
So basically nothing has really changed, but we get a news story that pretends that it has. The Services Directive is Dead, long live The Services Directive.

So No "Common Market", which is the only reason the U.K. joined.

Peversely, if we get what we want, some of our partners would say:

So No Social Cohension, which is the only reason we joined.

Which sums up what a stupid idea it all is really.

About the term "Social Cohesion"... since when has forcing people together, and then an "elite" parasiting off them been classed as social?

Only a lefty could come up with something so violently wrong-headed!
