Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
afew's take is on the money.

and the EU can't be serious about "democracy" while at the same time forcing trade agreements which completely subvert the concept.

Whatever the initials denoting the US-EU trade agreement, it must be a topic of discussion as it allows corporations to subvert even what democracy there remains both in the EU and in the nation-states.

Personal Opinion: I'd like to see Bjinse be well-informed about this trade agreement, as it cuts the ground from under a discussion of democracy in Europe. Especially that this is global and not just for the EU, as we see with the new WTO agreement, and the mirror agreement for the Pacific nations.

And i very much like that Bjinse brings up the demise of Presseurope.
