Apparently, the E.U. blows

A tip from VK (of DW&CS fame), who sent me the link to this BBC story on Friday:

Cocaine traces have been found at the European Parliament in an inquiry by one of Germany's main broadcasters.

The Sat-1 channel sent reporters to take 46 swabs from toilets and other public areas of the Brussels buildings. Nearly all tested positive for cocaine.

Yes, yes, I know. I'm sure there are any number of ways the cocaine could have gotten in there, and it may be somewhat presumptuous to point the finger at Europarliamentarians and/or their Eurostaffers and/or all those meddling, know-it-all Eurotechnocrats. But the next time the European Parliament does something stupid -- which could be any minute -- I'm sure this story will be in the back of not a few suspicious (and Eurosceptic) minds.

(Does the E.U. have a formal policy on Eurococaine?)
