Not this time. I think that you, Mr. Lofthouse, would appreciate it if, for a short time, we had fewer interventions.

I wish to examine the nature of the Commission. The idea that the European Commission is simply a bureaucratic body stuffed with civil servants is a gross misrepresentation. It is grossly over-represented by bureaucratic officials, but the Commissioners are all politicians, not merely civil servants.
