The lobbying labyrinth interactive map

Lobbycracy. "Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) invites you to join one of our guided tours through Brussels, the corporate lobbying capital of Europe. The two-hour tour introduces you to the headquarters of industry lobby groups, think-tanks, public relations firms and other key players in EU-level corporate politics, all located conveniently close to the corridors of power." There's a nice little Lobby Planet guide [PDF] with even more information. One group has come back with some criticisms about "factual errors", akin to our very own pantsgate.

The power of voodoo.

All that effort to subvert democracy! Imagine what it would be like if the money and time spent lobbying for corporations were put to some good use.
The one thing about the EU that I find most distasteful is the economic, rather than social, focus of it's structure. What's in it for the people?
Still, I'd rather be in than out.

Also, you should really wait for Elegual to open the door before summoning the voodoo spirits. Luckily, Elegual is my orisha, so let the voodoo commence!
