Why does the EU even have a parliament, if the actions of that parliament can be overruled at the whim of an unelected council that is not directly accountable to the people of Europe? This hardly strikes me as a progressive or democratic arrangement. Perhaps the EU itself needs reform, not just its patent policies?
