We were planning this month to expand our team and produce all sorts of videos. But Covid-19 had other ideas... Expenses this month were mostly related to inviting five candidates for in-person job interviews, as well as buying software, hardware and props.

The computers provided by the Parliament suck. We had enough.

06/03/202010 EU balloons

As much as we love Nena, 99 balloons were just too expensive. To be honest, we just needed these for a video. And we filled them faithfully with the same substance that makes up the EU: hot air.
