But legally, nothing substantial could change without our concurrence - either those "moves" would require a treaty (i.e., unanimity) or the kind of majority in the Council that can be blocked with our allotment of votes. Plus, politically (though this is a card to be played carefully), the point can be made to enough other member states that they might, in their turn, have reason to resist an increase in punitive attitudes in the central institutions of the EU.
