Who's Boss In The EU?28 Feb 2002
Heard on NDR4: The EU Commission is suing the EU Council of Ministers for overturning a Commission decision. The decision (involving pork subsidies in Portugal) was rather minor, but was overturned for purely politcal reasons.
It's interesting in light of the ministers overturning the budget warning for Germany, and recent comments by European politicians that the Commission has become too powerful and that more European decision-making should be made at the national and regional level.
It's also interesting that I cannot find a single web link to this story.
