One of the things that irritates me the most is hearing liberals tell me how good it is to be European. “They have a better quality of life, shorter work weeks, paid vacation, socialized medicine, blah, blah, blah.” Here is the latest perk for the Eurotrash:

Anna Diamantopoulou, the Greek commissioner for social affairs, has ordered an internal study of gender questions outside the workplace, it was confirmed last night.
