There will be a new EU agency to add to the list soon: the new EU Intelligence and Internal Security Unit (read 'Committee for State Security' or 'Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti' (KGB) to give it its proper title). Anticipated by one Olivier Luyckx, who's own experience appears to start and end at his graceful expertise for riding the EU gravy train.
Since MI6 hold the business end of all the strings attached to Baroness Catherine Ashton's every move (another prime gravy surfer) we can only hope they will truss-up too our new servant proposed to head the unit, Comrade Gilles de Kerchove.
One way out of this mess is to sink it through total non-cooperation; starting with keeping as much of your money out of the hands of 'the state' by every means possible. Another technique, though less robust, is to take it over from the inside.
If you cannot beat it; join it. Joint it and then beat it to death from the inside.
