Guardian notices Europe's democracy is at risk!

Wow! Even The Guardian has finally awoken to what is afoot in Europe, read the article from here, datelined today from Brussels, with a picture of the "turd in the punchbowl" Jean-Claude Trichet himself! A quote:

Yiorgos Vassalos of Corporate Europe Observatory, a Brussels-based pro-transparency group, expressed concern at a "clear trend" in favour of unelected institutions taking over decision-making. "European powers [are] distancing themselves from voters while at the same time [there is] a growing tendency towards building closer relationships with corporate and specifically financial lobbies.

These two trends are explosive and can only lead to a loss of legitimacy for the EU institutions."
