Free Movement and the 'General Pardon'

It's oftentimes disappointing how slow government officials within the European Union understand the implication of the objective of the European treaty concerning encouraging free movement within the union.

Even some dutch court rulings show this tendency: they seem to think that the principle of free movement is a static principle. And then you get these twisted decisions that compare entitites that aren't comparable. It's not what you are but where you GO!!!

The basic principle of free movement is actually quite dynamic: If a certain Law, decision discourages the free movement of citizens within the Union it goes against the intentions of the treaty.

The implications are clear to me....
