Yorkshire MEPs: European politics are politics as normal

Why bother voting in the next European elections? Two Yorkshire MEPs offered the following arguments at a conference on the future of EU democracy held in Leeds on Friday, 13 March 2009: First, because the European Parliament is the institution that democratically controls policies related to issues like climate change and the current economic crisis, which cannot be dealt with by individual countries alone. Second, because the European chamber offers real political options where members decide in accordance with their ideological positions, irrespective of their country of origin.

This was the rationale offered by Yorkshire MEPs Richard Corbett (Labour) and Diana Wallis (Liberal Democrat) at a public event at the Leeds Civic Hall focused on the practical implications of European politics for the younger generation. Participants included university and local secondary school students, who viewed the first screening of a student-produced DVD “Do it like a European?” about the importance of voting in the June 4th European Parliament elections.

This conference, celebrating 30 years of the first elections to the European Parliament, ended with a cautionary tale : if you do not vote, you let someone else choose for you. Whom they choose will affect policy priorities and outcomes. If you do not vote, you open the door to less democratic or extremist elements, a real possibility in Yorkshire.

Invited to speak at a round-table organised by the Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence (JMECE) and the JMECE Lab at the University of Leeds, one of the Labour MEPs for the Yorkshire and the Humber region, Dr Richard Corbett, said the European Parliament could be seen as a democratic response to one of the biggest challenges posed by economic globalisation: How to take decisions beyond the nation-state. “Rather than having diplomats make decisions for us, we have elected representatives who decide on issues that European countries cannot deal with on their own, as in the case of climate change”, said Dr Corbett.

Besides, decisions at the European Parliament are contested among political groups that divide ideologically, as in any other parliament, rather than by the nationality of their members. “A Swede Green MEP has much more in common with a French Green MEP than with a Swede Conservative MEP”, argued Dr Corbett.

“The European Parliament”, he said, “is about real political choices. In the end, you have to choose between those who want a regulated common market, and those who want a free-for-all market with few protections for consumers.”

The Labour MEP also warned about the risk of the region electing a BNP member for the European Parliament. It would be a shame for the UK, he said, to endow a fascist politician with all the extra legitimacy and the resources of European parliamentary representation.

Diana Wallis, the Liberal Democrat MEP for the Yorkshire and the Humber region illustrated how political choices are reflected in the European Parliament. She reflected on the ideological division between environmental “purists”, who oppose the use of any fossil fuels for producing energy, and those who, like her, would like to reach clean energy production “bit by bit”, allowing coal-reliant regions like Yorkshire to engage in low-emission energy projects like those related to carbon capture and storage. “Europe is about politics as normal”, Wallis remarked, “the sort of politicians you get into Europe, the sort of politics you’ll get out.” She argued that the current economic crisis, along with the challenges of climate change, may offer a good opportunity for the EU to show its relevance in this borderless world. “What we need is leadership” she said. “If you elect politicians who are isolationists, you won’t get the achievements of the past few years.”

In response to questions from the public, the two Yorkshire MEPs gave their opinion on the proposals for a more participatory democracy, and about the prospects of the EU becoming the United States of Europe. Diana Wallis said: “We need to spend time reassessing representative democracy, which I think it is partially broke. It was devised for the age of the horse and the cart, when your representative would go to the parliament and then would report back. We live in a different world now. The politician is in need of the help of citizens.” She supported the idea of the European Citizens Initiative, a proposal to grant citizens the right to set off the legislative process if they manage to get a million signatures from across the EU member states. Having citizens from all over Europe supporting a legislative proposal should be the closest thing to a “European demos”, she said, as there would be citizens from different states collaborating in a common goal.

Dr Corbett was more sceptical. Dr Corbett said the EU faced “a problem of space”: “European institutions are inevitably and unavoidably more distant, that’s why you should not take to the EU level issues that can be solved at the local or national level.” He argued that good ideas don’t need one million signatures to get into the EU policy-making process. There are other channels, like the MEPs themselves or the European Parliament’s Petitions Committee, to listen to citizens’ demands, said Dr Corbett.

As for the EU becoming the United States of this side of the Atlantic, Diana Wallis warned “we should not try to imitate the USA, because we are different.” In her view, the idea of a federal union is “passé and old fashioned” and has already been “thrown away”.

Dr Corbett said in a humorous way that the EU is “a Europe of States who are sometimes united, so up to a point we already have a United States of Europe.” As the former president of the Young European Federalists, Dr Corbett said he had never been afraid of using the word “federal”, as “a federation is about having different levels of government, being as decentralised as possible, and centralised only when necessary.” He said the idea of a federation conveyed, thanks in part to the British mass media, the image of a highly centralised state. He argued that although the EU already has federal characteristics epitomized by the European Court of Justice, it was unlikely ever to become “a fully-fledged federation”.

The conference, titled “You and the Future of Democracy in Europe”, was organised by the Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence (JMECE) and the JMECE Lab at the University of Leeds in conjunction with the UK Office of the European Parliament, the Europe Direct Centre in Leeds, and Leeds City Council.

Climate change event in Leeds

by FRANCISCO SEOANE PÉREZ

The European Parliament is only a “rhetorical champion” in the fight against climate change, with “limited impact” in shaping environmental agreements in the EU and the world. The current economic crisis, along with the shift of the centre of gravity of the EU to the East of the continent, are the two main reasons behind the watering-down by European governments of the ambitious so-called “climate legislative package” outlined by European representatives. These were the conclusions of a study on the role of the European Parliament in environmental policy-making presented at a seminar about climate change sponsored by the Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence on 27 January 2009 at the Leeds Business School. The event was a prelude to the official inauguration of the Climate Change Centre on Economics and Policy at the University of Leeds.

The European Parliament aimed at making of EU countries the most advanced in the world in the fight against climate change. Although the ambitious goals of reducing contaminating emissions by 20 per cent by 2020 (as compared to the levels of emissions in the 1990s), and raising the percentage of renewable energy consumption from the current 8 per cent to a 20 per cent have been formally endorsed by the European governments, the final legislation is full of opt-outs so as to leave with little or no punishment the failure to achieve those self-imposed limits. The current economic crisis was the “perfect excuse” for countries like Poland and Italy to justify their opposition to the text submitted by the European Parliament, said Dr Charlotte Burns, a political scientist at the University of Leeds, who presented the initial results of a research project on EU environmental policy and politics conducted with her colleague Dr Neil Carter, a professor from the University of York. The centre of gravity of European politics has moved eastwards, giving more power to countries who are still heavily reliant on coal-generated power. The enlargement and the current financial crisis are the two factors that explain why “all actors were ready for any kind of deal”, according to Dr Burns. Had been otherwise, she said, the European Parliament may have rejected the legislation eventually approved. “The downgraded climate package has weakened the position of the Union as regards to the rest of the world”, said Dr Burns. The EU no longer can expect to lecture world leaders on how to fight global warming at the forthcoming international meeting in Copenhagen in December 2009.

Comparing US and Europe

Dr Angela Carpenter, an expert on environmental legislation from the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds, reported on an on-going research project that aims at comparing the energy efficiency of oil refineries around the world, with a special attention on the question of whether those countries or states with stricter environmental regulations contaminate less. Although strong conclusions on causality cannot be raised from the data available, Dr Carpenter showed that US states with more rigorous environmental regulation like California are less polluting. This research project, led by Professor Andy Gouldson, the head of the Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds, is finding more difficulties than expected when trying to compare US and EU data on environmental issues. EU countries do not follow yet standarised procedures for collecting data on some of the parameters of interest, said Dr Carpenter.

Yorkshire and the Humber, a carbon-intensive region
Dr Stephen Brown, the Sustainable Development Manager at the regional development agency Yorkshire Forward, reported on the local strategy to reduce carbon emissions. Mr Brown said that, along with the Ruhr in Germany, Yorkshire and the Humber has the record of highest emissions of CO2 in Europe. “Yorkshire is an intensive CO2 economy”, acknowledged Dr Brown. However, regional businesses have been willing to co-operate in tackling this issue, showing interest in some of the regional agency’s recent initiatives, such as plans for the capture and storage of carbon to minimise the release of CO2 into the atmosphere, and a trial “cap and trade” system for carbon. This programme, known as Carbon Action Yorkshire, is intended as a training for the forthcoming implementation of new national and EU legislation that will ask companies to buy pollution permits from other businesses that may have not reached their maximum limit of contamination. In theory, this system would penalize polluters and would reward those who are more energy efficient. Carbon Action Yorkshire is the UK’s first regional carbon trading scheme, remarked Dr Brown.

13/09/2008 / Euro Election Roundtable in Sheffield (2008 European Year of Intercultural Dialogue Festival)

Yorkshire MEPs: Climate change, workers’ rights and helping the poor, key reasons for voting in the June 09 Euro elections

Getting the rest of the world to agree on global pacts to fight climate change, ensuring workers’ rights all over the European Union, and helping the countries in the developing world. These were the three reasons for voting in the next European elections due in June 2009 given by Yorkshire MEPs at a public roundtable in Sheffield on 15 September 2008 organised by the UK Office of the European Parliament.

Richard Corbett and Linda McAvan, Labour MEPs, and Timothy Kirkhope, one of the two Conservative MEPs from the region, took questions from the public in a lively debate moderated by BBC Yorkshire’s Political Editor, Len Tingle. The Liberal democrats and the UKIP, each of them with an elected MEP from the Yorkshire and Humber region were unable to attend but had supporters in the audience.

The European representatives were asked to comment on two recurrent criticisms about the EU: its alleged transformation into a superstate that would challenge national sovereignties and the presumed cost to the UK of EU membership.

Dr Corbett rejected the myth of the superstate claim, and pointed out that the European Commission was smaller in size than many municipal and local authorities’ bureaucracies. Responding to those who fear a loss of national sovereignty, Dr Corbett explained that all European legislation proposed by the Commission has to be approved and decided by the Council of Ministers (which comprises a minister from each state) and the European Parliament, whose members are directly elected by voters in each of the member states. Mr Kirkhope said he shared many of the criticisms regarding ‘red tape’ but dispelled the notion of a European superstate: “We don’t have a superstate, we are not likely to have that, and people in the member states would not like that.” Linda McAvan stressed her firm belief in local government and taking decisions close to the people. She argued for taking decisions on each issue at the right level: “I don’t think you could run a health service at a European scale, but for some rules you need such a European level, as it happens with the environment.”

The concerns about the costs to Britain of EU membership, voiced by one of the UKIP members in the audience, were rebutted as exaggerated by the MEPs. Dr Corbett said that any of the costs of being a contributor member (the UK gives more than it receives from the EU) were compensated by the access to the EU market, “the biggest trading block in the world.” Mr Kirkhope and Ms McAvan also highlighted the pro-European stance of most businesses. The Conservative MEP said almost every piece of new legislation is accompanied by an impact and cost-effectiveness analysis on its actual application. Ms McAvan stressed that businesses favoured supranational European laws that enforce common standards as being more effective and fairer than the pre-1993, pre Single Market situation of having to meet the very divergent requirements of individual national regulations.

The referendum on the EU Constitution

“Why have we been denied a referendum on the EU Constitution?” asked a member from the public. Dr Corbett said that, contrary to popular claims, the British Government had never suggested the idea of a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. “There was an argument to have a referendum on the Constitution, not on a treaty”, he said. “Britain has never ratified an international treaty through a referendum”, he contended. Previous European Treaties like Amsterdam or Nice were approved in the national Parliament, as Lisbon recently was. Mr Kirkhope deemed Dr Corbett’s reasoning as “cynical”, because in his view the Lisbon Treaty contained broadly the same text as the Constitution. He declared himself in favour of the Lisbon treaty, but supported a referendum on it. Ms McAvan cautioned about the populist appeal of referendums. “If asked whether there should be a referendum on any issue, the majority will say yes”, said the Labour MEP. She did not favour a popular vote on the Treaty, and defended representative democracy: “We elect politicians to take decisions.” Britain has ratified Lisbon in line with parliamentary procedure. The chairman asked the audience what their position on a referendum was. A small minority favoured one; the majority opposed one and a few people abstained.

Jonathan Arnott, the young leader of the UKIP, asked MEPs about the alleged mismanagements of EU accounts. The European representatives rejected the accusations of fraud in the EU, put the issues in perspective and underlined that the locus of responsibility for this lay in the member states where there was, in some cases, mismanagement. The member governments deal with the implementation of the funds provided by the EU.

The debate ended with a call for participation in the next European elections. Dr Corbett said that, besides fighting against climate change and for workers’ rights, UK voters have an extra reason for going to the polls next June: preventing the entry of the British far right in the European Parliament. If the Yorkshire region elected a British National Party representative, it would be “a shame for the country”, lamented Dr Corbett. Linda McAvan backed her Labour colleague on this issue: Electing a BNP as a European representative would be “a disaster.” “Make sure Yorkshire is represented by mainstream parties”, she added.

The roundtable with Yorkshire MEPs was held at a conference room in Sheffield Cathedral and was part of a larger event, the European Festival, organised in Sheffield by the UK Office of the European Parliament. This special day, which included dance, theatre, and music performances of a wide range of cultural backgrounds, celebrated the 2008 European Year of InterCultural Dialogue and 50 years of the European Parliament.
