The NewsIn a radical new move to reform the EU, the French have followed Britain, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Finland, Greece and many eastern European countries by voted "yes" in a bill to replace all representatives in the EU with water buffalo. The Prime Minister of Sweden is said to be surprised, but pleased with the result from France, especially as the proposal was not vetoed. France initially had doubts on the issue in the spring of this year when the issue was first discussed. Nicolas Sarkozy, French PM voiced the miss-givings that the new members would not put enough money back into the French interests, however one of the buffalo (who wishes to be left anonymous) has been holding private talks with Mr Sarkozy over the last few days. After the final talk before the French vote yesterday Mr Sarkozy said that he had "restored faith in the system" and added that "the buffalo have promised to review the issue of Aid in LEDCs more closely over the next few years". The representative of the then potential new council who had been hold the private talks with Mr Sarkozy was said by reporters at the conference to be "quietly confident" while maintaining a smart image for the public. The change is due to take place later next week for the first meeting of the new European Council, as over 100 tonnes of hay have been flown into Brussels for the new ministers. The new chairman of the EU was seen leaving the Justus Lipsius Building this morning but refused to comment on the situation.

Personally I think that this new system is a bad idea and will all end in tears. The track record of such things is very poor and the last time this happened in 1959 there were serious problems with trade tariffs across the whole of Europe. Plus removing them from power was a nightmare last time. The backlog of bureaucracy took months to clear and it caused major holdups in the British foreign office. There were also major issues with American relations at the time, which were said to be "rocky". Bad idea overall in my opinion. What are your views? Can the new European Council improve general standards in Europe? Should America follow suite? Could this system be used to help Less Economically Developed Countries develop?

I am concerned that third-party lobyists have too much influence with water buffalo.

What? I have heard nothing of this before! Perhaps if an affair between this individual and the Buffalo were to emerge it may cast aspersions as to this Buffalo's suitability of the job. The bird itself looks like a representative of the IEU (International Egg Union). This meeting could well have been about the taxation of eggs and the free movement of produce supplied by the IEU! Thank you for bringing this up. I will be writing to the Beaver-in-Cheif of operations about this issue.
