£5 million for a few pens!!!

Marta Andreasen has today revealed that the European Parliament has just contracted a firm to the tune of £5 million to produce what are amusingly described as 'communication objects'.

As she points out, "It appears that the word austerity doesn't translate into any of the EU's 25 official languages".

She is now going to see if there are any links between the hlders of the contract a local Belgian fim by the name of International Graphic Editions & Promotions and the Parliamentary authorities. Not they have of course, but you know, weirder confluicts of interest have arisen before.
