Isn't it amazing how many big companies back the EU? I'm sure it is not to ensure competition since actions show that there is suddenly less of it as the "competitors" are driven out by big business. And here we see the difference between communism and fascism, the former take the companies lock, stock and barrel, the latter use them to forward the EU plan. The end result is of course the same.
You are quite right. But then EU regulation always impacts disporoportionately on small and medium firms, and thus favours the corporates. The most cost-effective way for thre corporates to increase market share is to drive their smaller competitors out of buisness. Regulation performs admirably in that respect.
