From working on access to European Commission documents to drinking mojitos with friends and attempting to navigate the dangerous roads of Brussels on a bicycle..


"I get a bit carried away with my presentation on the problem of EU commissioners, MEPs and staffers - who go through the revolving door into corporate lobbying jobs and over-run. [...] I need to prepare for next week's meetings. First thing on Monday I will be meeting with the European Federation of Public Services Unions to discuss a new campaign; EPSU is already a really active member of the Alliance for Lobbying Transparency and Ethics Regulation. We are on the steering group of ALTER-EU and it would be great to have their support for our new action. But that is Monday; as for now, I am off on that bike ride."
