A class trip to Brussels - Martin Sonneborn explains Europe


The adventure begins in the spring of 2014. Unexpectedly, Martin Sonneborn, former editor in chief of the satire magazine Titanic, is elected to the EU Parliament – as the sole representative of his party (“Die Partei” or “The Party”). And now that he’s there anyway, he decides to find out: How does Europe work? At first, it’s like a class trip for grown-ups, with Europeans speaking 24 different native languages all coming together. They don’t know each other but are supposed to make policy together. And the years ahead prove to be turbulent: an expanding EU, Brexit, data privacy laws, the Catalonian crisis and the relationship between the US and Russia. It quickly becomes clear: Even those in the highest echelons of the EU are just people too. Plenty of material here for a satirist ... Mr. Sonneborn Goes to Brussels – Adventures in the European Parliament is an uproariously funny look behind the scenes of EU politics in the age of European aspiration and Brexit.
