Silly French

The more you learn about the French, the more you realize you were right all along.  

The EU parliament is required to leave Brussels one week every month to go to Strasbourg.   I kid you not.   It was insisted upon by the French in the original treaty.   Which means that thousands of deputies, aides, journalists etc, must make the monthly pilgrimage to Strasbourg.   Silly.   (Which pretty much describes French politics.)
