This press release from the European Commission  is WELL-WORTH A READ. Check it out!


EUROPA – PRESS RELEASES – Press release – President Barroso and Edmund Stoiber call on Member States to step up efforts to cut red tape for SMEs and improve the efficiency of their public administrations.


For me, this is a truly amazing story, the European Commission has been responsible for massive, unquantifiable bureaucracy and inefficiency for decades and now has the hypocrisy to gloat over their success in reducing bureaucracy.


Once again, this makes me think that the EU bureaucrats are in it for themselves, with their gold-standard pension, deep expense accounts, generous benefits and high salaries – these are the people who are proposing austerity for everybody but themselves.


For me, it is time to repatriate power to national governments in Europe.


Any thoughts?
