Looks great! I've made a couple of very small amends but I think this is a good job :) Stevie Benton (WMUK) (talk) 16:16, 12 September 2014 (UTC)[reply]


Small comments; overall looks like a great starting place that we should do more of.

  • " should be harmonised" - does harmonization imply mandatory implementation? I think yes, but just wanted to double-check.
  • "results in ineffective legislation" - an argument that is used here in the US is that it is not just ineffective, but actively harmful to have widely-ignored laws on the book, because it decreases respect for the rule of law. Not sure if that is (1) an effective argument in the EU or (2) a good use of limited words/space here.
  • responses to common counter-arguments: maybe it makes sense to say what the common counter-argument is? Sort of obvious in this case, but not a bad practice overall.
  • "This does not change privacy and personality rights." - more accurate to say "should not" or "does not need to"?
  • " Many EU countries" - how many?
  • "her/his" - may want to use "their"? Though see Singular They.
  • Maybe link to the EU/Strasbourg story if it is documented anywhere?
