Fragrant Margot’s Freedom of Information

An interesting incite into the workings of oh so Democratic Euroland in figures originally prised out by Dutch MEP Jens-Peter Bonde and brought to my attention by the always interesting EU Serf 85% of all rules are adopted in 300 secret working groups under the Concil of Ministers. There are aparently 3000 such secret Quangos and not even MEP's are allowed to know who sits on htem other than the chairman, and would not even know that where it not for the work of Mr Jens-Peter Bonde. How is the democratic element of Euroland supposed to perform it's scrutinising function when it cannot even know what names, let alone what they are saying, of people discussing our future?
