Barroso Commission Approved by EP. The nominated Barroso Commission was today approved in the EP with 449 voting in favour, 149 against and 82 abstaining. Now it is time to get to business; there is much to do, not least to create a more prospeous Europe. The debate and events that preceded this approval, with the Italian nominee for Commissioner at its centre, is sometimes regarded as a failure for the EU. But it is the opposite. This is a very good example of checks-and-balances in action. In contrast to Sweden, for example, in the EU there are balancing powers that restrict what the executive power is allowed to do. More of this and we get a better Europe, with a Union that can focus its main missions.
