There will not be a United Europe, ever. EU ministers reject ‘super-regulator’ idea.

  The effort to create a so-called “super-regulator” of telecom matters in Europe was dealt another blow late last week while Americans were preparing their Thanksgiving dinners. While meeting in Brussels, Belgium, the European Union telecoms ministers rejected the latest proposal from the European Commission and Telecoms Commissioner Viviane Reding to create such a group that could have veto power over the regulatory agencies of individual European countries.

Reding has pursued variations on the super-regulator plan for more than a year, but the European Union has only made minor concessions toward her efforts. After last week’s rejection, Reding cited a recent U.S. intelligence report that suggested the EU’s status as a politically powerful group could weaken by 2025.
