Real World: Brussels!

Everyone remember this old joke?

Heaven is where the French are the cooks, the English are the cops, and the Germans make the cars. Meanwhile, hell is where the English are the cooks, the Germans are the cops, and the French make the cars.

How about trying the same thing as a solution to the rotating presidency of the EU. Just imagine how much fun you could have when a Portuguese Finance Minister, a French Foreign Minister and a Polish President try and set the EU agenda. What could go wrong?

Better yet, imagine the same set dynamic, but only as a reality show, say Real World: Brussels!

“This is the true story of seven EU ministers, picked to live in a conference room. Find out what happens when they stop being fake, and start getting real."

Two words: video confessional.
