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

Both "councils" are formed by one set of EU member heads of state.

What?! You sound very confused indeed. The Council of Europe has nothing whatsoever to do with the EU, which is the reason why Russia once applied for membership, and successfully at that, and only was kicked out recently, after decades of membership.

If one council is not part of the EU, neither council is part of the EU.

Undoubtedly, one council is not part of the EU, and equally undoubtedly, the other one is.This is school children stuff. People quickly forget that (the disambiguation thing in my link wasn't set up for nothing), but to earnestly and repeatedly claim that the Council of Europe was not independent of the EU is more than astonishing.

Cat, why are you doing this?
