de facto capital.... inaccurate[edit]

I removed a claim that Brussels is the de facto capital. It simply is not. It is the host of the Commission which makes it a central focus for national politicians but some actually think that other places have more political influence. e.g. Berlin... http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/01db45ba-1c32-11e2-a63b-00144feabdc0.html#axzz3sIXiHL00

(I came here because the American TV News outlet ABC News actually called Brussels THE capital of Europe - my emphasis - which is totally inaccurate. Europe is a continent and has no capital, and the EU has no Capital City because the EU is not a nation. Articles like this one seem to be the source)
