    Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and several Commissioners will meet US financier George Soros next Thursday (27 April) as part of consultations on a new Hungarian law that could close a university he funds, and of legislation targeting foreign-funded NGOs.

    The EU Commission proposed Tuesday changes to the EUs decision-making process, in a bid to increase transparency and accountability in procedures for implementing EU legislation. The EU executive wants to change what is known as the Comitology Regulation, which gives it responsibility for the required implementation of Community legislation in many areas. It exercises these delegated powers by working with national civil servants appointed by Member States in different committees. These committees, which are a forum for discussions and the voicing of opinions, are chaired by the Commission.

    There you have it, it's official: the European Union has truly gone insane. EU President Donald Tusk ("president" is a misnomer; Tusk wasn't elected by European voters, of course, because that's how Europe rolls) wrote a letter to 27 EU heads of state listing Donald Trump as a threat along with communist China, dictatorial Russia, and murderous radical Islam: "An increasingly, let us call it, assertive China, especially on the seas, Russia's aggressive policy towards Ukraine and its neighbours, wars, terror and anarchy in the Middle East and in Africa, with radical Islam playing a major role, as well as...

    A traditional nativity scene will not be put up in a Belgian town this year, amid claims it was scrapped in order to avoid offending Muslims. A former leader in Holsbeek, about 20 miles outside Brussels - claims there will be no manger to mark the festival because it would be 'too provocative'. . . . The decision not to put a nativity scene up was supported by the ruling coalition of the Christian-Democrats and the Green Party. But the Flemish-nationalist N-VA party called for locals to attend the towns next assembly meeting - and to each bring a nativity...

    The prime minister of the Netherlands, Mark Rutte (of the supposedly classically liberal VVD party), says in an interview with Dutch website that he realizes that signing the EU treaty with Ukraine could cost him votes. Still, he implies, he intends on doing so. The hypocritical prime minister who, for months, pretended he'd take the referendum results seriously (more than 60 percent of the Dutch voted against the treaty in a referendum earlier this year), has no actual intent of doing so. Yes, he says, he realizes that it may cost him some votes, but hey, he's the Prime...
