a blog about Brian. He likes to wear clogs and drives a 1968 Triumph Herald.
I love that character, and I love that you agreed to allow us to use it for the Chasing Brussels podcasts.He perfectly stands for us, for the Brussels bureaucracy, and the EU in general:a) for us eurobloggers, because we are mostly male, and our topic (EU politics) so far is for real geeks (he looks so amazingly geekish);b) for Brussels because he fits the stereotype of a Brussels eurocrat;c) for the EU in general because his name Brian reminds of "The Life of Brian" (e.g. Judean People's Front & People's Front of Judea in the film, the EU Council & European Council in the EU) and both the film and the EU are full of satire.Thanks a lot, Matthew!
Gratz Matt. Knew you'd do good things :-)
Cheers Julien, it's great to see my work used like this. Glad to be of service.
