Catching up with Romania

I was fortunate to spend last weekend in Bucharest talking to Liberal candidates ahead of Romania’s parliamentary elections in November.

I cant claim credit for the best answer of the day.  In response to the question, “How do you deal with opponents who offer voters a million lei to buy their vote?” an experienced Liberal Senator replied: “Tell them ‘he might offer you a million now but we have raised your pension by a million for each month'”

Belatedly, if its the sort of thing that floats your boat, you can find my EPERN report on the Romanian elections to the European Parliament at:
