This is too much! Readers who are familiar with the Swedish politician Jan O. Karlsson, will get a kick out of this announcement:

"Vice-President of the European Commission Neil Kinnock has appointed Mr Jan O. Karlsson, former President of the European Court of Auditors, as chairman of the new Financial Irregularities Panel (FIP), with effect as of 1 February 2004." (European Communities, 02/04/04.)

The above mentioned politician has been involved in several scandals. He once had a private crayfish party and then sent the bill to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Guess who he called: "that fucking Texas geezer."

In the news: Ex-commissioner's fraud case goes to court.

UPDATE 02/15/04: Ex-Swedish Minister Won't Be Charged.
