The European Commission is planning to roll a massive spliff to celebrate 50 years of mind-numbing policy-making. It will be rolled in waste paper created by the culling of fourteen directives, planned for next month. The Joint-EU-Treaty as it is affectionately known will measure 24.7 metres and will be propped against the side of the Berlaymont for all to toke on to their heart’s content. Last week, Commissioner Kovacs visited a specially created indoor farm in Finland where the weed is being grown (see picture).
It will be lit by Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs at a special ceremony which the commission’s press service is calling “Get Off Your Tits for Europe Day”.
