Following my post yesterday on the matter of our airports, today comes a press release on the subject. and it will come as no surprise that the EU already exerts control on how we 'manage' our airports. I should, perhaps, have mentioned this aspect in the previous post, however I like to credit my readers with the fact they are, indeed, 'informed'. The video which the EU has produced to 'wow' the people of Europe, in the hope that they will accept all this 'harmonisation' in the areas of transport, has to be seen to be believed!
Readers will, of course, realise that this latest edict on airports will be carried out in order to further the harmonisation of 'practices' within the EU, thus enhancing the working of the single market. The problem is that, when considering Articles 4 and 6 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), it behoves me to repeat a question previously posed. Would anyone care to name one aspect of your life that is not - or will not be - affected by our membership of the European Union?
