The European Parliament: From infanthood to full rights as an "adult"

Rapporteur David Martin (S&D, UK) on Nov. 25 on the new rights of the EP with the entry intoforce of the Lisbon Treaty:

"the Single European Act took the Parliament from being a baby to infanthood, Maastricht took us through puberty, the Nice and Amsterdam Treaties took us into adulthood and I believe the Lisbon Treaty takes this Parliament into the full rights of an adult Parliament"
