German humour

Showing a group of Germans around the Welsh Assembly committee rooms this morning I commented that on a visit to a committee in the Berlin State Parliament a few years ago I had been amazed to see caterers pushing trolleys loaded with coffee, cakes, chocolates and other delicacies around the room for the politicians to help themselves to whenever they felt the need for sustenance.

“when we are discussing policies in the committee rooms” I said “ We are allowed only tap water.”

“Ah” said one of my guests “we give our politicians food because the more they eat the less they can talk.”

I think he was joking…..
