Surprise o' the day

Straight from EuroPravda, this headline:

"Ombudsman: EU institutions must become more transparent".

Well knock me down with a feather, European Ombudsman, P. Nikiforos Diamandouros.

It would seem that it has taken Niki a while to work this out - 'He was elected by the European Parliament and has held office since 1 April 2003', and this statement of the, dare I say it, bleedin' obvious, would also seem to have eluded his predecessor Jacob Söderman, even though Jake has also been a 'Member of the Group of Wise Persons'. Although the where, what, when etc of that group eludes me.

In Eurospeak this probably means moving to an office with bigger windows.
