No, the organ which you describe is the Council of the European Union. The European Council is a different EU organ.

The one I had in mind was the one with that dude mister Rompuy. That's the European Council. It consists of all the top dogs from member states i.e. presidents or prime ministers. (heads of state/heads of government).
You are right there is also the eerily similar Council of the European Union, meetings of which consists of ministers from member states of specific areas.
But Still, I think, I THINK, I have it right when I meant 'The European Concil'.
Here's their homepage:http://www.european-council.europa.e...tution?lang=en
And here's the Council of the European Union:http://www.consilium.europa.eu/council?lang=en

No, not similar at all

See Articles 15 and 16 TEU (Lisbon). The European Council has no budgetary powers. The Council of the European Union does have budgetary powers (together with the European Parliament).

Doesn't that just mean that whatever program or agreement is produced by the European Council has to be agreed to by parliament? In that sense you could say the parliament is the body that makes decisions about the cohesion funding. I will however defer to you if you feel confident because I sure as hell don't!

No, most of what the European Council does is to decide political questions, like accession of new member states, amendment to the EU treaties, etc. Nowadays accession does need to be approved by the EU Parliament.

The EU Parliament has been gaining power. How it works in practice is that the Commission comes up with a proposal and then the Council (of the EU, not the European Council) and the Parliament go back and forth on it. It used to be that the Parliament would just rubber stamp whatever was decided in the Council on budgetary questions, but that's not true anymore. If the Council agrees with all the details in the Commission's proposal, then I guess the Parliament would go along. However, if the Council changes anything in the Commission's proposal, then I would expect the Parliament to look closely at which variant they prefer and possibly stake out a position different from those of the Council and the Commission.

One of the classes I teach is Introduction to EU Law, so I may sometimes be too confident.

Your description is how I understand things to be. And after browsing the homepages I linked I agree 'The Council of the European Union' is the decision makers about funding allocations from 2014, not 'The European Council'.
Nobody has mentioned that there also exist a different organization called 'The Council of Europe'! Not part of the EU organization though. Are we in Europe just not very imaginative or what?

Years ago, I had an exam question which was something like: "Explain the differences in composition, selection, responsibilities, and procedures of the European Council, the Council of Europe, the European Union Council, and the Council of the European Union." Fortunately, I understood that the "European Union Council" was fictitious and added to make the question more challenging.

-as some good news
-no news at all
-publisher is crazy


and since holidays are over and 9/12 is a big day for all parites in Romania, I believe we all understand this is just a promised very tasty but never-seen-yet cake for election. decisions are taken in Brussels not in Bucuresti.

spiderman, once you publish EU commisioner statement without words: "would", "could", "might", "should" this will be definately good news. all others is just a crap.
Fail! One foreign word for you: "seemingly".

The bait has worked through well.

PS: Still butthurt with me. :-)

Le Clerk/spiderman,

at first a hint for you:
please mind your language, your words do not hurt my ego, but definately your words show what kind of language you speak.

now about your bait. apparently I understood the foreign word, but again, too optimisitcally I assumed you would work it out. hmmm ... you did not. please do not spam this thread with your news. there is no point to publish/quote anything which do not reflect facts. you keep doing it, although 2 days ago you asked to clean the mess here, so I assumed (optimisitcally) you wanted to have it professional. anyway your inconsistency does overtime. not to mention you kept saying abot not replying to my posts...

but definately ask yourself (usualy it works the best if you stand in front of a mirror):

what is the purpose on my presence here ?

a) if the answer is: to deliver news like "Godzilla aproaching Tokyo"

then please find a thread with disney cartoons like you did with a sipderman picture. btw the you made my day with the picture of siderman. a pity you quickly deleted it ...

b) if the answer is do deliver facts and figures
then please stop writing here

Not many bears near Transagarasan. Most probably near Sinaia.

hmm, maybe I should not ?
I follow this thread quite carefully, because I am very interested in romanian infrastructure.

now you may say I am not objective (at present porbably I am not), but could not meet any other user here who spread so much wrong/useless/not confirmed information.

you see for last 15 years i have been running complex projects (not in motorway industry), as you know - better than I do - motorway construction is a tough job.
now, just cross Le Clerk's picture of developing romanian motorways with reality then ... let me not finish.

you know there is a very harmful understanding of a blondie girl intellect. they are not clever, copy/paste data, forward without understanding, etc. and lately I have cought myself thinking LeCkerk is a blondie girl. does not input any real value but says a lot.

anyway, you are a boss here. I find your post as a public suggestion to stop it. I got it.

I honestly must say that I'm nostalgic over good old times when tens of Romanian users were posting facts and pics over this thread. Now it is just a copy/paste waste of time. This could be done by a bot, Chris. Or you could simply post a link towards Romanian speaking threads. They are more reliable, because those users have actually seen those pieces of infrastructure they are posting.

and that is the point. I am foreigner, I cannot go to romanian language thread, because I cannot understand it. people who are close to Romanian motorways are Romanians, not poles, dutch, or any other nation. they post in their own language, there is no need to express their thoughts/observation in english.
so what happened they left ?

sometimes i compare it with polsih thread. there are many users there, different opinions, but generally no wrong/useless/fake information. if poles can do it (quite complicated nation with a lot of tenses) why not romanians ?

here the majority of "news" belongs to one guy who does not understand anything about the reality, does not remember his own opinions, but collects posts like airline miles (census ? why not, bear in sinaia ? why not)
chriszwolle - I believe - you should also keep an eye on the value of information posted here and somehow encourage other romanians to share information here.
