Speech in Strasbourg - November 16th: Before you talk about promoting democracy in the European neighbourhood you should allow it to be reinstated in member states
The EU purports to be a player in world affairs and this statement wants greater co-operation with the United States on many different levels.
I wonder what our American friends make of Cathy Ashton who has never received a single vote in her life?
Now the EU is dismantling troublesome democratically elected governments and replacing them with unelected technocrats like senor Monti in Italy and the disgraceful actions of un-elected Council President Von Rumpoy who poured scorn on calls for a referendum and fresh elections in Greece - because We the people means something completely different to the United States than it does to the European Union.
When Americans refer to the ´people´ they mean the masses yet in the EU the only people who really count are the technocrats
Before you talk about promoting democracy in the European neighbourhood you should allow it to be reinstated in member states
