Fainting in Coyles
An occasional letter from the Heart of Euroville

Reader Competition
Fainting in Coyles is proud to be running a competition, on the behest of the European Parliament's official "Working Party on Communication Policy with a view to ratification of the Constitutional Treaty".

The administration of the Parliament is looking for "ideas for a symbolic act, possibly outside the European parliament building and suitable for TV transmission, whereby the European Parliament would solemnly mark its approval for the European Constitution".
All suggestions will be passed on to the relevant authorities.

To start the festivities, "subject to the Bureau's approval, the European Youth Orchestra would give a concert subsidised by the EP on the evening of 15 December 2004".I can report that the approval was given and the subsidies amount to €50,000. Can I assure you that I will enjoy the concert on your behalf dear citizens, because , of course you do not have security clearance to enter the building.
Thanks for the taxes.

This piece of waste and premature celebration has been brought to you by, Richard Corbett MEP, Iñigo Méndez de Vigo MEP, Jo Leinen MEP, and others.
