politjobs job alert EU 2017-50 – Brussels Christmas Follies

Dreaming of a white Christmas… not a very popular song in Brussels. The year is nearing its usual end with an absolutely unexpected natural desaster: snow.  3 cm suffice for chaos on the roads, at the airport, public transport basically completely paralysed – time to leave the city.

Someone apparently not informed about what snow does to the city, was Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. After US President Trump announced to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he showed up in Brussels  without being invited, in the middle of the snow chaos and right on time for the Foreign Affairs Ministers’ Council to push for a similar move of the EU member states. Brussels bureaucrats and even Heads of State are no fans of surprise guests, but as Christmas is a time of open doors, Netanyahu got his speaking slot – and a sharp response by the EU’s Foreign Affairs High Representative Federica Mogherini.

At least other issues give hope for a peaceful Christmas break: the EU and the UK have finally come to a divorce deal that allows to move forward with the next phase of negotiations – the UK basically agreeing to do as requested by the EU. Which is not welcomed back home: the British government is having a bad week, culminating in a vote by the British House of Commons, giving the UK Parliament a veto power on any exit agreement with the EU.

With all this excitement, we can be glad that the Bulgarian Presidency is aiming at keeping things as usual: Digital will be the priority, driving the EU’s electronic communications code and other items home. Politjobs will take a short Christmas break now, but before that, have a look and find attached some jobs and as usual more on politjobs.eu!
