Off to Brussels

J Clive Matthews

All being well in two hours I'll be on a Eurostar, two hours after that in Brussels. Then I need to keep my fingers crossed - I've still had no confirmation that I'm registered to attend, and have had no confirmation of the schedule, location, or anything.

This evening I should be reporting back from the introductory press briefing (somewhere in the European Parliament building at around 5:30 local time) and the first deliberation session (on pensions - what fun!). But without any details, and with no confirmation of whether there will be internet access available, I may end up reporting from my hotel room instead... Wish me luck - and if the worst comes to the worst, expect reports and pictures on Monday.
