How to make your career fly in the EU
Back in February this blog posted about William Hague encouraging young Britons to consider working for the EU Civil Service. If anyone took up the idea and wants to know how to really get on in their new employ, they should read on for some pointers to career advancement EU style.
For via Gawain at England Expects we learn how people have secured progression at the European Parliament. He shares a redacted email resignation in French that was sent to all 6,000 internal mail boxes at the Parliament and explains that it appears to have come from an official working in the Queastors office, and that it makes a series of allegations against very senior staff and reasons for employment of some other senior staff.
Below is a rough translation…
OK, I have taken the decision to resign from the European Parliament after I found out some things about you. In effect I discover that you have been shagging, and on top of that you have been drinking at the [female genitalia] of xxxxx(A) , xxxxx(B) and xxxxx(C). It’s a disgrace don’t you think?
These women are in interesting posts that require you to pass the concours (internal exam), or their promotions are blocked. Little xxxxx(C) is the same functionary who has never passed a concours. xxxxx(A) has never passed a concours and she is AD (a senior grade) and xxxxx(C) it’s been ten years since she was in the European Parliament.
So it seem you have to suck the [male genitalia] of the Secretary General to get a post, it is truly disgusting.
Same with old mother xxxxx, she was pregnant with the old Sec Gen and now she is a Deputy Sec Gen.
Faithful servant of Princess xxxxx (known as the Princess of shit)
Et voila, as they say.
No matter where our government masters reside, they still act in the same boorish and corrupt manner. We shouldn’t hold our breath for a major inquiry, resignations and dismissals. Where there is no accountability there is no fear.
