Summary:
There's a huge mistrust of European bureaucracy: organisations like the EPO and the Commission, with their huge democratic deficits, pursuing their own agendas in opposition to what actual practitioners in the body of people they may claim to represent - the electorate - actually want. I don't care about the wants or needs of the "UK patent community" because as far as I am concerned, patents should have nothing to do with my profession. The fact that one might speak of a "patent community" should be worrying in itself, because it sounds like the needs of the tail are more important than the needs of the dog.
