Councillor van Allen, if you want to go and "fix" internal situations, go ahead, nobody is stopping you. Please go ahead and do it. I'm not sure why legislating on external security or "unified security" is such a preposterous thing. Both things can be done at the same time. Both are important.
Commissioner Reynels already very politely explained that the volunteer forces aren't being held hostage by the Eurocorps Commander. They can of course be withdrawn.
If the volunteer forces don't have equipment, then they obviously shouldn't join the Eurocorps in the first place, because they're simply not equipped enough to fight, and they're also actually endangering the Eurocorps itself by becoming an unnecessary burden. There's a reason why we wouldn't, say, be asking farmers to join the Eurocorps. I doubt the Eurocorps would want them in the first place. This is such a silly argument. If a member state doesn't have properly armed and equipped forces to contribute, then they simply shouldn't contribute. The Eurocrops is fully voluntary for a reason. However, as I mentioned earlier, I support the idea of supplying the Eurocorps with enough money so that they can procure equipment for themselves, so this wouldn't even be an issue.
To your second last point, Councillor van Allen, the legislation states that each unit will be headed by a national of their member state of origin - it almost certainly has to be someone chosen by their state's government, otherwise who else would they be volunteering in the first place - that is of a certain military rank that is deemed acceptable by the Eurocorps Commander.
As for your last point, it is not up to us to decide how to structure the Eurocorps, that is for them to decide. We seriously don't need to be carving into legislation the roles and responsibilities of each member, which would result in absolute chaos, as the Eurocorps Commander couldn't delegate anything new nor be flexible in their management during a time of chaos and conflict, and they would need to go through an at least a 6-day legislative process of amending this act every single time they amend or create new roles. What a horrific nightmare that would be, and what an absolute detriment that would be to the Eurocorps and its effectiveness.
Also, it's funny how you mentioned something being undemocratic. In order to be part of the European Council, you need to be an democratically elected member. Since Mr. Hufton passed away after the Elected and Accountable Council Act was enacted, and you came to power through legal succession and not a national election, you are not even a valid Council member. So, security, please take this man to the public gallery. You will be barred from this discussion. You can can join future Council proceedings once you have been elected in a way that satisfies the Elected and Accountable Council Act.
