Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yes, a solution to all this must be found. My first instinct was to put the parliament at the top, ans the segregation of bodies doesn't indicate the flow of connections between them. I was working from the Institutions site - but it may well make more sense to see the whole flow from the point of view of the citizen rather than the EU official view.

All comments and criticisms welcome - this was just a 90 minute doodle. With several days of work it can be made more efficient and, I hope, beautiful. But I'm interested to see whether people think the general concept of attempting the map to be useful or not

... and the Parliament kind of like they are, but instead of the "to be named later" boxes, swing the gap around to  the middle of the bottom row, and have the arrows with the relationship of the Parliament going out to the other bodies, organized in an area below the "states and parliament" box above.


I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

Important point, and one that may be a 'selling' point. Our aim is not to 'toe the party line', but get ordinary citizens involved - because official EU communications have totally failed in that.

Probably add how does EU money fund things for me view as well, we all get to see "EU funded" signs, but there are other ways that EU money effects the average citizen that aren't so obvious. The EU needs seeing as an opportunity, not in the Murdoch view as an obstacle.

That is another "flow chart" with arrows: follow the money.
