EU Courts unveil leaks
A new era of transparency or Babelfish strikes again?
The European Court of Justice has just moved into new premises, but it seems they share a signwriter with the hapless menswear shop in Brussels that boasts of its ‘loan to carry man’ (‘pret a porter homme’).
The court’s shiny new corridors now bear signs pointing visitors along a “path of main leak” and a “path of secondary leak.”
Is it a euphemistic – and frankly unsavoury – way of indicating where one can perform one’s number ones and number twos?
Or perhaps a new policy of transparency for the court’s devoted press pack (of three journalists)?
Or have the contractors slovenly just translated the emergency exit routes from French using Google?
