EU petitions committee debates Brussels-Strasbourg 'travelling circus'

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - Campaigners working to abolish the so-called travelling circus that sees the European Parliament move from Brussels to Strasbourg for one week every month, have had their complaint heard by the parliament's petitions committee, the first 'official' exchange of views on this contentious issue in any of the European institutions.

1.2 million people has signed the petition against the travelling circus which costs the taxpayers €200 million every year.

The french wants the circus to go on.

"Do the citizens know about how rich a community [in Strasbourg] we have?" asked French Liberal MEP Janelly Fourtou, wondering where financial rationalisations will lead next. "If this is all about rationalisation, should we next be rationalising the languages that we use?"

TOCK! Is the sound of my hand making contact with my forehead!

Strasbourg is a wonderful, open city with beautiful women and an excellent cuisine not to mention the climate, whereas Brussels is incredibly dull, ugly and boring and the only thing worth eating is mussels.

If anything, the parliament should move permanently to Strasbourg.

On the other hand Brussels have got beautiful women and a much more open minded state. The architecture is stunning and above all- It's not in France...
