GMOs behind closed doors?

[img_assist|nid=225|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=43]The president of the European Commission Barroso came up with a new idea to solve the problem that so far there has never been a qualified majority to approve of a GM crop: he simply wants to get Member States to agree on GMOs behind closed doors.
If there is no qualified majority either in favour or against an application, that is a given number of votes that is higher then just a simple majority, then it is up to the Commission to take a decision. That the EU Commission is described as undemocratic is nothing new - but does the Barroso have to make it so blatantly obvious? And is he really hoping that those countries that abstain from the vote, or even vote against the approval of a GMO can be pressured into conforming to his wishes once the public can't see what's happening?
