Self Regulating Lobbyists

A Polish Lawyer, runs her eye over the contrasting situation of Lobbyists in Warsaw and Brussels:

However, if I were a lobbyist and could choose whether to work in Poland or at the EU, I would already be on a plane to Brussels.
The reason?
The EU's take on lobbyists is essentially a gentleman's agreement on good conduct. It appears to assume that all players will abide by the rules, but requires some reporting for transparency and honesty's sake.
So the role of the world's sleaziest profession, is self regulating in the EU. Nice to know isn't it.
