More Daul

I was rather amused by the first e-mail Joseph Daul sent out to the staff of the EPP group, which started:

Chères Collaboratrices, chers Collaborateurs,

And thanks to Eliab for pointing out to me that Daul is a Frenchman from Alsace who only ran for the presidency of the EPP because the outgoing leader, German Hans Gert Pöttering, told him he would have his backing as a candidate.

Pöttering, who is of course now the President of the European Parliament folling a collaberation of his own between the Socialists and the EPP over who got to president of this committee and that.

Oh, European Politics. It's so corrupt.
