ACTIVE EXERCISE - INSIDE THE BEAST - MR „EUROREALIST” SPEAKS

Look at the following address by a eurorealist „expert” on government to a group of people in the EU bureaucracy. Can you understand what he's talking about, using the language of the past exercises to help you? Fill in the gaps with words from the last seven exercises.

Ladies and Gentlemen, MEPs, Members of the 1. ……………………………, Commissioners.

The topic of discussion today is the working of the EU - how we 2. ……………………………,1 and what problems there might be with that process.

Of course there are always problems with the 3. ……………………………to …………………………… of the EU - always complaints about 4. ……………………………2 or example. My worries however are more to do with the fact that people in Europe can't see what we are doing, the so-called lack of transparency. This adds to what people have called the democratic deficit (where people don't have enough say in what the EU does). True, members of the 5. ……………………………3 are 6. …………………………4 by member states, but this happens quite infrequently. True, people 7. ……………………………5 for members of the European 8. ……………………………,6 but this Parliament mainly has powers to 9. ……………………………7 and rarely 10. ……………………………8 what the Commission 11. …………………………….9

Of course some say that the Commission's wide - ranging 12. ……………………………10 before making its proposal is a kind of democratic process. This may be so, but remember that the Commission's job is to 13. ……………………………11 legislation which is to increase the 14. ……………………………12 of the EU, so its interests are not the same as Member 15. ……………………………. Another reason for thinking that the Commission is too powerful is that when the Commission dislike's 16. ……………………………'s13 17. ……………………………,14 it can force the 18. ……………………………15 to agree 19. ……………………………16 on these changes or the process will go to 20. …………………………….17

This brings me to probably the core problem- the meetings that are held „behind closed doors”. For a start Parliament does not discuss very much at all - this is done mainly through 21. ……………………………18 and the detailed work is not debated in Parliament. Secondly, these 22. ……………………………19 are very much influenced by the 23. ……………………………'s20 24. ……………………………s21, under the authority of 25. …………………………….22 These are very much in discussion with the Parliament's 26. ……………………………,23 and this person can suggest ways in which the Parliament's amendments can become acceptable to the Council. Then there is Conciliation and the 27. ……………………………24 which take place between
