Collapse of the European Parliament's ceiling in Strasbourg

Of course the best news today was the realisation that next week's Strasbourg session is in Brussels.

At the beginning of the month we were all notified by the Parliament's Secretary-General the grave news that part of the ceiling in the chamber in Strasbourg had collapsed. Despite best efforts to repair the damage the Strasbourg chamber will not be ready in time for next's first session back and while everyone is glad that no one was hurt when the ceiling collapsed there has been much rejoicing at the prospect at not having to head down the road for a trip that costs taxpayers millions of euros. I also now don't need to remember to pack Alyn's canteen and put it outside the office.
