There is no such thing as the Eu, just politicians / civil servants working in their own interests(so unlike our own dear government)
So elected officials can go to their voters (both of them) and say "I'm working to protect you from the evil AI"
The civil servants can work on cool new AI stuff rather than the 32nd draft of the "Nuts (unground), (other than ground nuts) Order"
