No proper MEU starts without a mock debate, so on the opening evening on Thursday, the Council and the Parliament set out to debate a proposed directive trying to get hold of the dragon population inside the EU. The Directive was going to give certified knights the possibility to fight dragons, as long as the population stays higher than 100 dragons.
Northern member states, which were more strongly affected by the problem urged other states to help them. Ireland asked for financial transaction for fighting the dragons, France strongly opposed. The French minister had an interesting idea himself though, ”Put them in a circus in the Baltic states and if they brake free, they will attack Russia. That’s a double win, a jackpot.” In the end, an amendment was accepted to only stop hunting the dragons once the population is lower than 30.
