Yes, sorry. The names of much over there has changed over the years. It's hard to keep it all straight from here, even though I try.
I wish it was more integrated though and had more clout. Then we'd perhaps not have the stupid single country distribution and artists rights agreements that have seemingly made it hard for Apple to offer one EU wide store.
Yup. That was my point.
No need to use the F Word.
That's the problem then, isn't it? They have to decide what they are. Either they are some sort of economic union, or they are a regional grouping of independent states that have various treaties,and a body to oversee them, or they are one political, economic, and military union.
If they are one union, then they have to decide what type. They seem to want to be some sort of commonwealth.
But commonwealths don't work. We tried that here at first, but gave it up quickly (thank heavens!). Nothing can get done in a commonwealth because of the political centrifugal force of the member states.
It may be the "F" word, but it's the only thing that will work.
Good thing you are mostly still out of it.
