A necessary public announcement

It would appear that we can no longer refer to the process whereby the Toy Parliament gets involved in EU legislation as Codecision. That, too, was changed by the Constitutional Lisbon Treaty.

In a correspondence with Chris Bryant MP, present Minister for Europe, about a report the House of Lords Select Committee on the European Union produced, which will be debated this Thursday, Lord Roper, Chairman of that Committee wrote (somewhat sardonically, in my opinion):
Thank you for your letter of 14 January about scrutiny of Codecision - which we must now call the Ordinary Legislative Procedure.
What, one wonders, might Extraordinary Legislative Procedure be?

    "What, one wonders, might Extraordinary Legislative Procedure be? "

    Repeal of the ECA 1972?
