Time for the EU Parliament to leave France?

Description

Once a month, all 766 MEPs and their staff commute from Brussels to Strasbourg in the French region of Alsace to hold a four-day plenary session. But on November 20th, a large majority of MEPs voted to demand a treaty change so that all parliamentary business can be conducted in Brussels. So is it time for the EU Parliament to end the costly shuttle between the two cities?

  • Brexit: Another crushing defeat for Theresa May as parliament overwhelmingly defeats deal a second time

    Another crushing defeat for Theresa May: following weeks of renegotiations in Brussels, her new proposal on how best to exit the European Union on the 29th of March was overwhelmingly rejected. "I profoundly regret the decision that the House has taken tonight. I continue to believe that by far the best outcome is that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union in orderly fashion with a deal.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d?avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu?en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l?arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. ?Le train est plein?, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
