Member of the European Parliament

A Member of the European Parliament (abbr. MEP) is the living proof that eurocrats are elected by the people, as in every well-functioning democracy. They change every five years, which is more or less the time they need to get a basic idea of how the European Union works.

They have a symbiotic, and sometimes parasitical, relation with their assistants (see APA), in fact they usually delegate the most demeaning activities to them: writing amendments to legislative acts, running their social media accounts, or picking up furniture at IKEA (true story).
