It does not diminish from the fact that the EU circumvented the veto by establishing a treaty within a treaty that not all members had a say in.
There's nothing to "diminish" because that is just nonsense.
"The EU" did nothing at all
there as administrative EU institutions are subordinate
to the elected politicians and have no vote and no decision powers in political matters.
Instead, those EU member countries
who were actually participating
in the mechanisms in question decided that it would be unfair if the UK as non-participating
country nevertheless had a say on those mechanisms, which would in fact infringe on the sovereignty of the participating countries and which would be an absurdity in view of the UK's explicit opt-outs from those mechanisms in the first place!
That should be quite obvious and easy to understand.
As I said before the veto is an illusion
Since your arguments are based on just false assumptions, that conclusion crumbles with them.
as the EU will circumvent the established protocol if it’s in its own interest to do so irrespective if a member use the said veto.
Again factually false
, hence your conclusion fails with it.
Also it’s no secret that a number high ranking officials including Ms Von der Leyen would like to see the end of the veto in its entirety and go with a qualified majority voting instead.
Ursula von der Leyen is effectively just an employee
to the Council of member nation governments, appointed by them and reporting to them and also confirmed by the elected MEPs, and she has no
decision powers in such matters at all
Any such matters require a decision by the elected national leaders and in many cases the consent of the elected Parliament as well.
The EU federalism or bust that is the future waiting for member states
The European Union only becomes what the elected heads of national governments plus the elected Parliament decide. No "unelected bureaucrat" has any decision power there (and as I had explained, all of them are subordinate to the elected politicians again).
"The EU" as you're imagining it simply doesn't exist
outside of your misinformed imagination.
The entirety of your assumptions about how the EU works and how it makes its decisions is just factually incorrect
as you could easily verify if you actually took the marginal effort. This is not a matter of opinions, it is a matter of hard, verifiable facts which can be checked and verified.
Unfortunately though, you've taken a historical, life-changing decision for your country based on that misinformation because you couldn't be bothered to check a few simple facts which are easily looked up and which you even got served on a silver platter in this forum, too, but which you chose to ignore because the misinformation felt more convenient to you.
