Wow I knew my French would come in handy someday! 

Overall this email has clearly been written by someone who gets it. 
Sentences like:

"A computer is after all but a collection of mathematical formulas"


"The commission's second version of its directive, which totally
ignored the work of the parliament, takes a completely contrary
position to many points from its first version"

Let me just point out one hilarious sentence:

> La Présidence Irlandaise, dont  nous ne 
> pouvons pas  être insensibles au fait que son Web site soit sponsorisé 
> par Microsoft, a tenté de s'y employer en  classant le dossier dans les 
> points  A,  prêts pour être adoptés sans débat. 

This says:

The Irish presidency - whose website, one cannot ignore, is in fact
sponsored by Microsoft - have tried to have the bill adopted without
debate by classing it in points A.
