Apparently all the way. I give you perhaps the most self serving, deluded piece of 'Gosh. Aren't I wonderful' drivel that I have seen in all my time in Brussels. It even beats Nirj's "I survived the Tsunami, so don't worry", presser from a few years back.
Here is the Slovenian EPP MEP, Alojze Peterle and his extraordinary invitation.
I would love to know who actually asked him to do this, and whether they were joking.
Dear colleagues and friends,
At your request, I am going to give a lecture about my recent fasting for a whole month. I have abstained from food and drinks (except for water and fresh orange juice) for the whole month of January 2009.
I would like to share with you my reasons for fasting, the method I used and the results I have achieved from it.
I consider the decision to fast as the best one I have made so far this year. I feel that this experience has given me the important energy and strength I need for the looming European election campaign.
With pleasure, I would like to invite you to my presentation about fasting, on the 18th of February 2009, from 8am to 9am, room: ASP 5H-1.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
With kind regards,
Lojze Peterle MEP
