The End of Week Quote

"London and Brussels are two hours apart by train yet sometimes the two cities seem to be on different planets. At one end of the track lies Europe's premier financial centre, a fiercely competitive world of traders, bankers and fund managers. It is a place that plays by the rules of the market – and pays little heed to consensus.At the other end, the bureaucrats, diplomats and deputies roaming the European Commission's corridors in Brussels proceed at a different pace: the rules they draft, amend and eventually agree are years in the making. Theirs is a world of patient compromise, life-long employment and – often high-minded idealism."
