Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If you don't see a problem in 26 of the 27 scrapping the current Commission to build a new one against Britain's veto, then I guess you're right, there's no real problem! ;)

I think the point is that this "compact" is being hyped up as a binding treaty to impress the markets (as if), when in fact it never looked like being a full 27-country Lisbon revision, and will not even be a 26-country "treaty" (too much ratification and referendum-type hassle). It will be, at most, an inter-governmental agreement that the Commission is supposed to police (some hope, as the Commission is apparently muttering) and the ECJ rule on (no hope).

So it looks like a turkey for Christmas, but start plucking it and it turns out to be dead crow.
