They say that you can tell a lot about a person by seeing their home. Well, seeing the new website of the UK Office of the European Parliament, I would guess it was designed by someone bored of the EP’s preferred colour of sun-bleached blue and who is a bit of an architecture fan. Why else would the UK Office put the Strasbourg Parliament building as the banner image? Strasbourg, the home of the EP’s monthly boondoggle!
My favourite part is without a doubt the EP News, which has all of the committees listed in an HTML table with each item on the agenda. No need to click to each committee and then open the agenda in a PDF or in a pop-up window. All the information, in one place. Fantastic.
