Storyline

B'stard's insensitivity causes all the European Parliament's translators to go on strike so he orders the installation of a experimental universal translation device - which of course goes wrong. As a result he makes a speech demanding that English be the official language of the E.U. but in the meantime Piers' misuse of the universal translation has inadvertently promised the interpreters a pay rise and a holiday in the Seychelles so they return to work. B'stard himself does very well by buying up a tract of forest, which he knows will be compulsorily purchased at a huge profit to himself to make way for a new autobahn route.
