Hungary: Fidesz MEP László Trócsányi says confrontation between the EU and member states institutions are predictable.
He hit the nail on the head when he stated that the EU Commission often “grinds down member states’ opposition” and forces its decisions on them.
Trócsányi would have been a tremendous asset – maybe the only one – to the EU Commission, but was rejected by the left.
Maybe someone can correct us, but the V4 Report cannot name one current EU Commissioner that adds value to the process.
That’s probably why a class act like Trócsányi was blackballed.
– Trócsányi said the EU Commission often “grinds down member states’ opposition” and forces its decisions on them. Those decisions often seem to seek a “stealthy expansion” of EU competencies, he said, as if the EU institutions had forgotten that the member states are “lords of the treaties.”
The constitutional institutions of member states, however, are starting to “develop a defence mechanism” against the EU’s centralisation efforts, Trócsányi said. One such reaction was the German constitutional court’s ruling, in line with other efforts to keep European institutions under the member states’ control, he said.
The EU institutions’ primary role should be coordinating member states’ responses to those challenges, he said.
* The Eurocrats in Brussels, full of delusions of grandeur, think they are ‘the show’. Unfortunately, the nation states have willingly allowed Brussels to acquire more control with little opposition…besides the governments of Hungary and Poland.
Nation states need to start taking back control from the army of EU mercenaries and opportunists looking to expand their own scope and power.
