Because if I read the diplomatic language of the Draft Council Conclusions on the Stockholm Action Plan, a plan that Commissioner Malmström presented last month, correctly, then the EU Council is punching the Commissioner right in her face*.
My translation of the draft conclusions into everyday language would be this:
"The document you presented is rubbish and incomplete, and we will only work with the original Stockholm Program."I don't recall having seen such clear comments in a diplomatic text for a while...
* Note: This is an exaggeration for the purpose of dramatising the blog post. Usually, Council bureaucrats/diplomats would probably prefer to throw with staplers.
