European Parliament not Brussels
The BBC should stop using the term 'Brussels' to describe laws and regulations agreed by *our* European Parliament. Leading up to the EU referendum this gives a false impression that another city in another country is above our UK sovereignty when it is actually agreements from the EU parliament that we are part of.
Why is this important?
The language appeals to xenophobes and irrational nationalists. The city of Brussels is itself not politically involved. The BBC should set the standard and not seek to inflame opinion by giving the false impression that another country is passing laws above our own. They are passed by something we are members of which seeks to establish common democratic standards.
This is not a minor grammatical mistake, it is part of a systematic bias, a poor habit and poor journalism.
