... but now I have to correct something. There are a lot of people calling the EU a banana republic. Actually this is kinda true. It holds for the current decision making process, which is written down in the Treaty of Nice. This treaty cements the lack of democratic procedures in european legislation. The document, which is referred to as 'the constitution' would have changed this status quo. Hence, would have brought more power to the elected parliament. But well, 'the constitution' is dead. Europe will have to live on being a banana republic. Was that absolutely necessary?
