An early contender for woman of the year

Or Person of the year, but that sounds so artificial.

From that source of many fine things, the Romanian Times:


A Romanian MP read a nonsense speech in the Chamber of Deputies yesterday (Tues) but no one else appeared to notice as her colleagues applauded her at its end.  Liberal Adriana Săftoiu read quotes from American journalists and politicians on themes ranging from terrorism to cancer treatment without anyone noticing.  Săftoiu said afterwards she had wanted to test her colleagues’ attention to speeches and show that an MP could say anything.  Săftoiu told the daily Gandul that she had done it in protest against the way MPs behaved in Parliament.  She said: "I wanted to show my colleagues it did not matter what one said." 

I'm going to let someone else take a shot at the open goal that this presents.

Săftoiu looks to be a good egg, and her party a selection of good ova.  I suspect I would vote for them were I granted a vote in Romanian elections.

Grand!

I've just sent links to my Romanian friends. Perhaps they'll comment too.
