Here you see two laptops,
Can you see any difference between them? Not really.
However it seems that there could be an existensial difference between them, as you might be able to tell from the email sent out this morning to the Parliament.
Last night, TWO of our laptops were stolen from our offices, incl. one owned by the MEP.
If anyone else has recently experienced the theft (this week), please come forward and we can deal with this together.
For the rest of you: Please be cautious not to leave your materiel in your offices and help us speak out on this subject. This has gone too far, people's personal belongings are being stolen from their own offices in a political institution.

"I have being coming to Strasbourg every month the last 21 years
As I never have been stolen I can not help you. Sorry
21 years and still a Parliamentary assistance!
