My Favourite Brussels anecdote
When my friend, former MEP Astrid Lülling, invited me to the official inauguration of her “place” – the Astrid Lülling Lounge – in the European Parliament. I was astonished as to how lively and full of energy she was. She answered: “Don’t worry Gilles, we talk about the popularity of the MEP’s Bar, but I’m sure that here everybody will honour my memory”.
