Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think we need to offer our version of the questions. It's their job to do the consultation process properly. If we did it, it wouldn't be organized under the same headings, either. We'd have to tell them how to do the whole thing! No, I think it's perfectly legitimate to complain, pure and simple.

Section G: well, it needs mentioning that the major points of general policy are handled near the end, instead of at the beginning. It's true the point is less clear the further one is from the Green paper and the Consultation questionnaire itself.

This leads me to the conclusion, actually, that we can't push this too far from base. The complaint necessarily supposes a degree of knowledge of the questionnaire. Commissioner Piebalgs and his staff may be assumed to have that, and Commissioner Wallström can take a look at it. MEPs and EP Committees too can be supposed to be familiar with the workings, at least, of these things. But the more general the audience, the less likely it is people will understand what we're bitching about...
