We are going to have the election to the European parlament june 7. Normally when we have our election to the swedish parlament somewhere around 90% of us votes. But to the EU-parlament 40% is a good result. We joined the EU after a referendum but we don´t like it. We take every chans we can to complain about it :-) The EU parlament has very little power and is placed in two cities, Brussels and Strassbourg. The move between the to cities cost enormus amounts of money, but France refuses to let Brussels be the only place to have the parlament.
I wount let You have to read me whine about the EU, but they have for instance decided that a strawberry has to have a minimum size to be allowed to be called strawberry and that a cucumber is less worth if it´s bent in the shape. For a while they also put extra taxes on the bananas we like in Sweden and Germany (big and not to sweet in taste), just to protect some of the countries old colonies that grow a rather small and sweet banana.
It seemes I have to get another car soon. I like the one I have now, but there are some problems with it and it would cost as much to fix it as it costed to buy it. So now I have to start looking for a new one. This time I would like to have a smaller car, preferably a small stationvagon like a Volkswagon. Normally I always have a Volvo or a Citroen but they use to much petrol. The prize on petrol is now 5,9 US dollars/ US gallon and now summer comes and the prize will be even higher. Strange really that the prize always rises when summer comes, happens every year over here. But I can have this car all summer with a bit of luck, so I have lots of time to find another.
Well, it´s time for some tea and a couple of sandwiches I think.
Have a great day now!
