Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The last actors on the European stage who are "excluded from decisions made in Brussels" are big companies, which have considerable lobbying presence and influence. Which they would like to hang on to, while ripping the teeth out of regulation.

Meanwhile most of us, far below on the ground, are de jure and de facto "excluded from decisions made in Brussels".

Note that the authors of this touted report,

Clifford Chance, which is based in London, advises companies on trends in EU law and liaises with legislators and regulators on behalf of its clients.

have a vested interest.
