Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A few years ago, somebody (who didn't know me very well) told me I should apply for a job as a lobbyist in Brussels for a multinational corporation (let's say the biggest American mainframe computers manufacturing company...). The job description was very explicit: the only objective was to lobby the European institutions in order to bring "business friendly" changes to the European law, mainly labour laws. Needless to say I didn't apply! 2 years later, I met the head of this company's lobbying department and the guy who had been recruited: the discussion that followed vindicated what I had understood...
