“Let the executive power bow down to the legislative power”

“Let the executive power bow down to the legislative power”

Maxim Sokolov

The European Parliament has recently been acting on an impressive scale – boldly and decisively.
MEPs are not limited to reacting to events that actually took place. As, for example, in the case of the trial of ” Memorial ” – the parliamentarians recently called for the authorization of “those involved in the oppression.”
In contrast to the winter war of 2021-2022, when Russia, according to especially ardent analysts, must invade Ukraine. Of course, the genre is famous:
By Telegraphic dispatch
The governor has been notified
That “is walking in a column
Napoleon on him “…
but
Until dawn behind the gardens
Mother and daughter wander together
But coming with the peoples
Bonaparte is not to be seen.
But this does not stop the European Parliament, wh-ich hastened to publish an encyclical in the spirit of the hero of Pyryev’s “Tra-ctor Drivers” Klim Yarko:
And if suddenly a hardened enemy climbs,
He will be beaten everywhere and everywhere
Then the drivers will press starters, etc…
Moreover, the meeting speaks not only about Russia, where every bast is in line. At the same time, deputy chairman of the meeting, Nicola Ber, calls for a “total boycott of the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing” to be declared, and the EP deputies boldly sent a delegation to Taiwan, much to the delight of their Chinese comrades.
Courage is also seen in household chores. In its resolution, the European Parliament indicated that “the Constitutional Court of Poland has no legal force and independence and has no right to interpret the country’s Constitution” (why it is needed then at all is not reported), and sued its own European Comm-ission for the fact that in the problems with rebellious Poland, she displays unacceptable opportunism. Wh-ereas the European Com-missioners should have l-ong ago pounded the table with their fists in the ob-kom style and roared: “We will break this business.”
Against this background, the awarding of the A. D. Sakharov Prize to A. A. Navalny looks like a rather innocent eccentricity, although, of course, Alexey Anatolyevich as a “fighter for freedom of thought” (the official wording) is strong. In Russia, even his adherents prefer not to peddle this topic, since in the performance of A. A. Navalny, freedom of thought sounds like “A step to the right, a step to the left is considered an escape, the convoy fires without warning.” Many sincere supporters of the beautiful Russia of the future have experienced this firsthand.
It was this outstanding quick-wittedness that was the reason that the head of the European Parliament David Sassoli was banned from entering Russia in May of this year, while Nancy Pelosi herself was not even banned. Perhaps, however, there was also cynicism. The completely hostile Victoria Nuland is given a one-time visa when she needs to grind some questions. Some things can still be discussed with Nuland. Kind of like in Bern with General Wolff. Conversations with the European parliamentary authorities are meaningless: these authorities only know how to make rituals. Well, let him roam in Brussels.
For the European Parliament, established quite a long time ago, in the epic 1957, in its seventh decade already remains the fifth wheel in the Eurocar. Even the 1979 reform did not help, after which the European deputies began to be elected by the population, which, it would seem, should have increased the status and significance of the assembly. But it didn’t. As the EP was a sump for political waste, which was no longer suitable for anything, it remained. Getting into the EP is a political death. True, quite comfortable. Back in the 70s, rude Germans wrote a poem: Hast du einen Opa, schick ihn nach Europa (“If you have an old grandpa, send him to the European Parliament”).
Although this is generally a hallmark of European construction. EP, OSCE, PACE and many other structures, it is not clear why they are necessary and the meaning of their existence is not entirely clear even to Europeans – and even less to citizens of countries outside the EU.
Some structures have come to terms with their escheat existence, especially since the salaries (and in fact pensions) there are very respectful, of a crown scale, and some have not come to terms.
Perhaps the European Parliament is reinforcing a certain paradox. The real power in the EU is vested in the European Commis-sioners, whom no one ele-cted and who are not res-ponsible to anyone. Wher-eas the EP was chosen on t-he basis of the sacred four-tail, and it seems that “let the executive power bow d-own to the legislative pow-er,” as the Cadets once said.
She, however, does not even think to bend, which annoys the MEPs. They poured their irritation into passionate resolutions, so-mewhat reminiscent of the best times of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR (1992-1993).
Meanwhile, the Europ-ean bureaucracy knows its business, stagnates in opportunism and does not want to share with anyone. Even with the most flamboyant and noisy MEPs.
There is nothing good in the European bureaucracy either, but choosing between apparatchiks and rabid demagogues, others prefer the former.
