PSD2 - EU Sleight of Hand?

True to form, the EU Parliamentary process threw up an amended proposal for the new Payment Services Directive last Tuesday, leaving everyone two business days to consider it before this week's Parliamentary session. Conspiracy theorists will wonder what last minute lobbying victories were secured and what might have been different with a few weeks to consider them.

It seems pointless to review the draft, let alone summarise any changes, since further changes may well emerge this week from lurking MEPs. Who knows what will finally pop out in the Journal? Only those swimming in the primordial soup.
