More EU 'Transport' News

From Europa and one of their newsletters we learn that there is to be a Joint EESC-EC Conference on the White Paper on Transport - The Viewpoint of the European Civil Society, to be held on 5th December this year. Do note the use of the word 'civil' and be not fooled it is meant in the context of 'civilian' - it is not, for 'civil' read stakeholders, quangocrats, bureaucrats etc.

It is also possible to read a speech given by Siim Kallas, Vice President and Commissioner for Transport at the recent gathering of the European Council for Automotive Research and Development (EUCAR) held on 8th November 2011 during which he imagines:
".......European cities served by fleets of ultra-clean, smokeless and silent vehicles, buses and other public vehicles, perhaps powered by electricity."
which was included in the next steps being planned by the Commission.

It is perhaps pertinent, at this point, to remind readers of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) Article 4 (2): Shared competence between the Union and Member States applies in the following principal areas: .......(g) transport;..........

And still the Lib/Lab/Con maintain the facade that we are a self-governing nation and that Parliament is sovereign.......................

People, you live under a dictatorship - wake up!

It's not just the arrogance and autocratic control of our unelected leaders but the fact they are all so stupid!
