Brussels seeks new powers
Thinks extendable arms and seeing through clothes would be “kinda cool”
Brussels eurocrats have set out a “wishlist” of new powers they’d like to see the EUHQ assume if European governments decide to re-open the bloc’s treaties.
Top of the list is “Flying!” and “Oooh, being invisible.”
The annex to the Communication on Enhanced Powers in a Revised Treaty Arrangement also puts “extendable arms” and “seeing through clothes” in the “kinda cool” category.
As the preamble to the policy document notes, “yeah, you could like sit in a meeting, and tap someone on the shoulder from across the room or something, or like see the boobies of a visiting dignitary.”
“European Parliament visits would be AWWWWESOME!!!!!!!” the paper concludes.
A previous draft of the wishlist included powers to pull the plug on a failing bank. That, however, was deemed unrealistic.
