Council conclusions to say nothing new

asleep (1)

On 9 December EU energy ministers will agree further conclusions on the internal energy market. Based on a collection of passive verbs, the final text was agreed in advance by deputy perm reps in Coreper-1 this week and so all that remain to be done is for ministers to show-up and slap each other on the back for the cameras.

Council conclusions are rarely translated, never indexed, never published in the Official Journal and as such are usually forgotten about within a few months if not sooner. But before this latest text is forgotten, it’s worth checking if it says anything new of note.

I’ve checked, and it doesn’t.

What’s next?
