Double wages

Imagine, today it is the 50th anniversary of the European Union and celebrations will be held tonight in the German capital Berlin, as Germany is presiding the EU as chairman until end of June. According to the latest Gallup’s done in Finland, only 25% of the population want the EU to have more say in their affairs and the same trend seems to be the same in most of the 27 member countries.

Anyway, here in Finland the elections are still not done, discussion about what went wrong? Who is to form a coalition government with who seem to go on and on, and endlessly written about and broadcasted in the Media.

One thing is sure though, the members of the Finnish parliament who also have seats in their home city councils at the same time, they have done well. Two well paid jobs and only half done job possible as you can not be in two places at the same time. And does this apply to the EU as well? Is it possible to hold two jobs, one in the home country’s parliament or government and hold one job in the EU council as well, get double wages even though you can not be in two places at the same time? No wonder nothing gets done and we get no value for what we are paying.
