The European Federation has officially arrived
“Establishing a European Public Prosecutor’s Office – A federal budget needs federal protection,” says Viviane Reding today.
She’s talking about the formation of a European Public Prosecutor’s Office, “to fight fraud against the EU budget and to uphold the rule of law across the Union.”
I like the idea of fighting fraud.
I distrust the concept of the ‘rule of law’ – it’s just a political concept devised to say, ‘you Pleb, me Lord, you do what I say, always, no arguments.’
But that’s not the point here. “It is a federal budget. If we don’t protect it, nobody else will do it for us,” says Reding.
Federal budget? Did I miss something? When did the European Union morph into the European Federation?
