My brother told me yesterday and I really could not believe it: the European Comission (the unelected government of this sui generis confederation) is pondering to make people pay for recieving calls to their cell phones.
The only logic I could muster on first thought was that EU wanted to discourage having mobile phones and using them. Certainly it looks quite persuassive. But nope: their alleged logic is to promote competition between companies.
Jon Ariño of the Basque consumer's association EKE could not believe it either: Lately the news coming from Brussels leave me perplex (...) the measure will not bring any sort of cheaper prices. (...) The European Comission is not a government for the people but for the lobbies.
