Merde in Europe – Stephen Clarke
One Brit in Brussels. Two French Women. And a whole lot of merde.
The hilarious new novel from Stephen Clarke, bestselling author of A Year in the Merde and A Thousand Years of Annoying the French.
Does Brussels really want to outlaw bingo, bagpipes and smoky bacon crisps? Are eurocrats trying to rename the English Channel? And can the ink in euro notes really make men impotent?
No. Well, not exactly.
But it is true that the EU is a seriously flawed institution.
And it’s about to become even more so as Englishman Paul West goes to Brussels to work for a French MEP, and gets an insider’s view of what really goes on in the massive madhouse that is the EU Parliament.
As Britain prepares to vote whether it stays in or exits the EU, Paul gets the chance to influence the result of the referendum.
He has to decide: better the devil you know? Or bring on the Brexit?
It’s a decision that could cost him a lot more than his euro paypacket . . .
