10 days ago I reported that the Council looked very unhappy with the Stockholm Programme Action Plan that Malmström had proposed not long before.
The reaction from the Commission (in the annex) doesn't look very friendly either, at least when you read between the diplomatic lines.
The translated version: Go f*** yourself! We heard your complaints but we didn't do anything wrong; to the contrary: we did what citizens and the Parliament expected from us!*
And so they threw the staplers back to towards the Council to equalise in the Stockholm games that will keep going on...
* This is a very rough translations. Commission officials are trained not to speak like this in public, so I am just making a rough guess.
