EU Commission and Same Sex Partnership Rights

There are some interesting developments on the EU law front this week. Vladimir Spidla, the Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities has stated that a new EU directive will continue to allow individual member states to decide same sex partnership rights. Whilst this might not seem to represent a step forward the fact that the EU commissioner is forced to say the directive won't do that means there is pressure to do so which in a convoluted sort of way is positive. Pink News also reports some positive developments in the EU parliament but they are unlikely to lead to any legal changes.
