EU Internet Clampdown - Senior official responsible resigns!

Talk about ba resignation coming too late, this surely must be a prime example. The complaints about how the new conrols were eneacted without parliamentary input, consultation nor any thought for the citizens who will be affected, all that is typical of almost all the EU undertakes, it is the fact that the official responsible only resigned AFTER the provision was signed into effect by all the member states, including Britain, as may be read here, amazingly enough from the EU controlled BBC itself!

In his resignation statement Mr Arif stated the following:

"I condemn the whole process which led to the signature of this agreement: no consultation of the civil society, lack of transparency since the beginning of negotiations, repeated delays of the signature of the text without any explanation given, reject of Parliament's recommendations as given in several resolutions of our assembly."

Protests have been taking place in Poland, elsewhere there seems to have been little publicity on the new rules, as in so much of what the EU steadily undertakes top make the lives of its citizens tightly controlled and effectively pointless.
