The riots in Hungary are weirding me out. I was there this summer. I was left with the impression of a gorgeous, vibrant city, full of music, skaters and fountains suitable for footbathing.

Okay, yeah. Eastern Europe. It has it's issues, and of course a capital is rarely a good mirror for it's country, but Boedapest seemed like such an easy going place. It's number two of the cities I'd like to live in for a bit.

So here's to the uprising of 1957 and let's hope the current upheavel won't end nearly as tragically.
Here's looking at you Hungary

Attention all European citizens. Please take a second to sign Cecilia Malmstroms online petition!

Every year the EU has to pay 200 million bucks to move the European Parliament back and fro between Brussels and Strassbourg. This is an absurd situation that exists solely because some people couldn't give a little (I'm looking at you France).

Just by signing you can help put a stop to this waste of time and money!

Ayaan Hirshi Ali has the last laugh, as the cabinet crashes over her ARCH NEMESIS Iron Rita. 
The rest of us hold off laughing until we've seen how many votes the hag gets in the upcoming election.

At any rate, I think it's safe to say we've seen the last of Prime-Minister Balkenende. That's both his cabinets that've gone out the window. Ouch!

This would be a good point to place some witty comment linking the state of this group to the EU, but I can't be bothered to think one up. 

Please people. You're allowed to use this group as your bedroom. There's plenty of shelf space for all your crap! ;)

Right. My excuse is RL got in the way, (though to be honest that hasn't stopped me from ranting in my private blog *hangs head in shame*)

So Europe. Three questions;

What's hot in the European music scene these days? Anyone know *cough padmez? cough*

Will they be airing the sequel to Russian flick Night Watch soon? It's called... well guess...

And on a personal note; What are the must see atractions/ hotspots in Boedapest? Or any other European city? Don't suppose anyone's got any vacation plans?

Today Turkey and Greece went for a game of air chicken. As usual neither was willing to back down, and two jets flying straight into each other. Won't make light of it, since they hadn't recovered one of the pilots last time I checked.

Allright, so obviously aircraft accidents do happen, but we're talking two military crafts CRASHING INTO EACHOTHER IN MIDFLIGHT! Don't these guy's have radar or something?!?! Asside from all the political ramifications that are appearantly already brewing away, does this mean that both Turkey and Greece will end up on Europe's little list of 'planes we do not want landing on our airports cuz they suck'!

Well, we're free of Eurovision for another year. As expected the Scandinavians voted for Scandinavia, the Balkans states for the Balkan and I voted for Germany, cuz damn it, if it's just gonna be politics, then I will damn well vote for my neighbour too!
The Dutch didn't get to embarras themselves in the finale this year, so our tele guy decided to do it for us. 
Mind he started of funny with the Will and Grace reference (thank you! Wasn't just me then!!!)

Queerie; If the point of Eurovision is to remind us that we're all friends then why do they piss me off by;
   a) Sucking
   b) Not having Britain and the other power states going through the semi-finals even though they suck just as much as anyone else?!

Queerie; What's the point of dressing up like Lord of the Ring characters if you're not even gonna re-ennact the battle of Helmsdeep?!?!

Now people, just remember! There is talent in Europe! Just not at the Eurovision!

I felt the need to let loose some frustration at our minister of Integration *hate hate hate* and enjoyed the experience so much I decided to let loose at our Nations leaders. 

Added a Brit one!
