Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I completely agree. I'd very much like to adopt a full parliamentary system in the EU in which the ECB is just another branch of the Commission, the Commission serves at the pleasure of the Parliament, and the Council is severely de-clawed.

But for "justify" you should, in the above quote, read "done something that will provide political air cover for" rather than "done something to provide a good reason for."
