My Favourite Brussels anecdote

The following did not happen in Brussels but is Brussels/EU related…and it may actually be more worrying than funny. Once I was involved in a pitch with my client in a European capital (which I shall not disclose further). One consultancy pitching, tried to convince us by saying that they have x-files on each politician, that contained all personal information (what car they drive, where they live, etc.). We of course said “no thanks”!
