Examples of laws impossible for voters to change - thanks to the EU |
A directive binds member states to implement its content, leaving it to them to decide how. For example the EU chemical directive, REACH, comes partly into force on 1 July 2009, after the European elections.
Thus a member state is unable to ban a particular chemical on its own, not even if it believes it causes cancer. Only the non-elected Commission can propose a change in the relevant EU legislation. Not a National Parliament … not the European Parliament …Not the voters.

The Friday InspirationPeak
If I wait to be perfect
before I love myself
I will always be unsatisfied
If I wait until all the flaws, chips,
and cracks disappear
I will be the cup
that stands on the shelf
and is never used

FUD. The spreading of FEAR, UNCERTAINTY and DOUBT.

Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) is a tactic of rhetoric and fallacy used in sales, marketing, public relations, politics and propaganda.
FUD is generally a strategic attempt to influence public perception by disseminating negative information designed to undermine the credibility of their beliefs.
And so on, and so forth ... educate self and search "FUD" in this site ...
