I got the occasion to take another visit to this building a few months ago, being invited by one of my friends. We talked, among other things, about the kind of politicians who populate this palace and about their determination to fight the crisis. You know, the Parliament's Palace is the home of the two chambers of the Romanian Parliament (among other institutions). He told me something I already knew: the Romanian members of the Parliament and the Romanian political parties have absolutely no idea what to do; our anti-crisis plan is the agreement concluded with the IMF.
Honestly, to be a little malicious, when you spend your time in places like the most expensive hotels of Bucharest and the second largest (and one of the most luxurious) buildings in the world (and our Parliament fellows do just that), it's rather hard to think about the problems of the country you are supposed to represent.
