Weekly round-up of some nonsense you might have missed:
- Mandelson asks for a Maserati - This one is a stretch of the imagination even for the 'Monster. With his predilection for fast cars, Six Jeunes Hommes and Bikram Yoga, shirley it's only a matter of time before somebody suggests he might ... you know ... be a poof?
-via the Open Europe Blog
- Naked MEPs - Apparently for a fiver you'll be able to corrupt a security guard at the Parliament for a look at Europe's finest without any clothes on.
- via England Expects
- DIY European Constitution - The Adam Smith Institute is offering a grand to anybody who can write a better EU constitution. The competition means compressing 76000 words into under 2000. Sounds like too much hard work for us, but if there's a reader out there who takes part, let us see a copy of your entry and we'll publish the first 100 words and something witty/caustic/lame about it on this blog, to be seen by thousands.
- European Parliament smoking ban banned - With just about everybody having something to say about it. So we'll say nothing. We're off for a fag.
