Unintentional comedy by diplomats

"Europe Day: bringing Europe closer to its citizens"

From The Daily Star, the english language daily in Beirut we find this unitentionally funny effort at winning "hearts and minds" among Beirutis whom they don't really need to win over - the sort with summer houses in the south of France, Monaco, etal. anyway.

The irony is that they are, in fact bringing europeans closer together.

Like Erik's point about the WTO: why do they still have 25 missions ANYWHERE? Isn't that
ballot box stuffing?

As for a sign of successful outreach...

Have a nice day.
