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…

Dear xxxxx,
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.
Ciao,
Mari No
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.

    To be fair, this woman may have had her email hacked, and just because she wrote it doesn’t mean it is true. But at the very least it has provided amusement for the 17 1/2 people still at their European Parliamentary desks this morning

    Goes without saying. But I think we all know there is more than a ring of truth about it :)

    Perhaps the e-mail is just a snap comprehension test for the Brits who probably aren’t even into machine translation!

    Remember the late-Malcolm Bradbury at “The Gravy Train” with Christoph Waltz ?

    Having interviewed at a Euro Agency it was fascinating to sit in the HR Department as a Greek official called to have a compatriot inserted on the short list AFTER applications were long closed…….it made clear why this was not a place to “work”

    And here’s the unredacted version, (with a few words edited for the sake of good taste…….

    Dear Secrétaire général,

    Dear Freddy,

    So I’ve taken the decision to resign from the PE [European Parliament] because I’ve learned some funny things about you. In effect, it would seem that you,(Klaus), are f*****g Freddy and that also, you are eating the p*****s of Worum, Andrades and Casalprim. Don’t you think that’s shameful?

    These women hold interesting positions and even though others are qualified, we remain blocked. Little Andrades is even a civil servant but she has never passed the course. Worum has never passed a course and she is AD and she has been at the PE for 10 years. So, if it’s necessary to suck the SG’s [Secrétaire Général] c**k to get a position, it’s truly f*****g disgusting.

    It’s the same thing for the mother F. Ratti, she’s had a child by the old SG, Vinci and she is the SGA. [Secrétaire Général’s Assistant]

    So have a good return to parliament after your well deserved holiday.

    Ciao

    Mari-No

    Faithful servant of Princess Leena Linnus (AKA the Slut Princess)
