Germany wants to revive the EU Constitution
The fact this was even considered has always incensed me. If I wanted to live under a fundamentally inert and insubstantial regime, I would move to France. Imagine, if you will, how long it takes to get something to and then through the European courts at the moment. Typically, it takes years. Now imagine the appelate process while various overpaid Brussels bigwigs cross swords over constitutional interpretation. The cost and the time to a decision would be astronomical.
You may argue that the US does this all the time. But the US has one advantage. The law is written in English and is interpreted by English speaking people who appreciate the nuances of our fair language. If an EU constitution were written, you might as well write it in Latin for all the use it would be to any given non-native speaking nation. Or Flemish.
It is quite simply, unworkable, unwieldy and unaffordable to the average tax payer. To even suggest its revival is moonbatism in its purest form.
Here endeth the case for the prosecution. Or should I say "Hier endeth het geval voor de vervolging"?
Don't even get me started on the EU as a principle let alone a single currency.
