The European Union’s budget is modest in size compared to national wealth,’ said José Manuel Barroso, announcing agreement on an EU seven-year framework budget of nearly €1 trillion for 2014–20. While this will be roughly 1 per cent of the EU’s Gross National Income, it is misleading to compare it to national spending because the EU is a bureaucracy which does not pay for public sector workers such as nurses, teachers, social workers or an army, even if its laws increasingly affect their working lives.

Although the Nobel award specifically mentioned the EU’s work for human rights, it is important to be clear that the EU is a separate organisation to the Council of Europe – the body which oversees the European Court of Human Rights. Popular confusion between the two is understandable. A pan-European human rights body was a brainchild of Winston Churchill, Britain’s wartime Prime Minister, at the same time as he also called for a political alliance of European nations. ‘We must recreate the European family in a regional structure called, it may be, the United States of Europe,’ he said in a landmark speech in Zurich in 1946.

The original EEC treaty did not have any reference to human rights but the European Court of Justice first claimed jurisdiction over fundamental rights in 1970. The EU seriously began to encroach upon the role of the Council of Europe in 2000 when it adopted a Charter of Fundamental Rights containing fifty-four rights (the original Convention had eighteen Articles) including the right to strike, to marry and found a family, to collective bargaining and fair working conditions. It was incorporated into EU law in the Lisbon Treaty of 2009, although Britain and Poland secured a protocol to exempt their legal systems from any new rights.
