More Brussels

Here‘s another random example of why Europe doesn’t work: ICT policy consisting of a chunk of liberalisation initiatives (great, if it weren’t a sure bet that they’ll be stripped out or frustrated by the usual culprits) and large lumps of pork. (The documentation is, characteristically, available in two pain-in-the-posterior formats, .doc and .pdf, instead of plain old html.) I spoke to a French guy this morning who said that his compatriots voted no because they thought the Commission was being run by Thatcherites. You could have fooled me.
