Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm a protagonist for broader roles for the EP, for EU-wide tax harmonisation at a high level, EU-wide harmonisation of labour and environmental laws at a high level, for an EU-wide application of the German feed-in law, for a shift away of funds from highways to public transit, and a heavy tax on sports cars owned by Brussels bureaucrats, parlamentarians and lobbyists.

On the other hand, I see more truth in what you say than the others here. Though, as afew implied, it's a difference that we do politics in our spare time and you do it all day as a profession. Then again, that's true of many of Chávez's supporters in Venezuela. There is also a class issue here, though many would like to gloss over that.

Is it only me or is anyone else also getting a whole bunch of déjà vus? The Matrix seems to have been reprogrammed.

I want to learn how to do the political equivalent of that bullet time thing.

That would be really cool.
