I am happy to see that at the initiative of the Dutch social-liberal party D66, the liberal ALDE Group today has put forward a new text to enshrine net neutrality in law in Europe. I am pleased that Venstre’s Jens Rohde has now finally listened instead of lecturing and talking about net communism.
Jens Rohde proposed the amendment together with D66’s Marietje Schaake on behalf of the ALDE group. The text clarifies uncertainties and closes loopholes that remained after the vote in the CommitteeThe European Parliament is divided up into Committees: smaller groups of MEPs that work on a particular topic. More for Industry and Research.
Dutch MEPA Member of the European Parliament. Someone who has been elected to represent citizens in the European Parliament. More Schaake: “It is too early to celebrate, but informal talks suggest that a majority in the European Parliament will support the definition of and guarantees for net neutrality in this proposal. Net neutrality has been enshrined in law in the Netherlands and in Slovenia, but not yet at a European level. By doing so, competitiveness, innovation and the open internet will be protected against abuse of power by companies at the expense of consumers. ”

My support for calls on members of the ITREITRE, or the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, is one of the committees in Parliament. More committeeThe European Parliament is divided up into Committees: smaller groups of MEPs that work on a particular topic. More to support an earlier amendment to close loopholes endangering net neutrality during the committeeThe European Parliament is divided up into Committees: smaller groups of MEPs that work on a particular topic. More discussions and votes for the telecommunications package, which is has gotten rid – finally – of extortionate roaming charges. Jens Rohde got so annoyed by this that thought it was appropriate to lecture me about how to be a politician, listen and make compromises. Having lectured me on listing and engaging in respectful dialogue… Amelia Andersdotter retorted with the fact he had been calling her stupid and uncooperative in the Danish press while refusing to discuss the proposal with her.
.@rohde_jens du kallade mig dum och osamarbetsvillig i dansk press. jag försökte prata med dig flera gånger om frågan. @karmel80
