#EUAmmoban - Lead Ban Update - EU Commissions evil plot is revealed
- Commission believes that they have now have the necessary majority (15 countries, 65% of population) behind proposal.
- Commission pushed things for a written vote on 24th of June, and member state have until 15th of July to express their opinion (yes, no, abstain)
Please note - now comes the "evil part": The timing is very "approriate" because it coincides with vacation season. If country does submit a vote, it is seen as a "yes" vote to support commissions lead ban.
If the outcome of the vote is positive, then there is 60 day period when the issue is discussed in the European Parliament but it is extremely unlikely that proposal gets shot down there.
After 60 days, the game is over.
In other words - we know now what is the commissions evil plan - it is to utilize vacation period and hope that member states do not vote. Make sure your country casts their vote AGAINST lead ban.
Lobby locally. Contact your local member of parliament. Make sure to have your say until it is too late!
