Unrelated to EC competition law, but could not resist to post it. In its conclusions under Case C-246/07, Commission of the European Communities v Kingdom of Sweden, 1 October 2009, Advocate General Poiares Maduro made a surprising reference:
Sweden did not let that decision-making process take its natural course and culminate in a Council decision either for or against the addition of PFOs to the Convention. Sweden should have engaged in the Community decision-making process until such a decision was reached, even if, politically, it felt that its efforts to achieve a common proposal on the addition of PFOs to the Convention were as doomed as lemmings heading towards the edge of a cliff.
Plain excellent. Thanks to Cedric Cheneviere for the pointer.
