As our readers will recall, I have always considered the entry of Romania into the European Union fraught with all sorts of possibilities.
Well, here is one. Ananova reports that witches in Romania (where it is a fully recognized profession probably with its own trade unions) have found a new outlet for their charms.
Witch Florica, from Pitesti in southern Romania, said: "It's a new type of spell that we had to work out of course.Perhaps, some of our businessmen and, especially, farmers could benefit from the lady’s efforts.
"You cannot pretend you are a real witch if you cannot help a businessman get the European Union funds he wants.
"For example, only the other day I had a young businessman who came to me with his papers applying for European funds.
"I spread the cards on his documents, said my spells and splashed the papers with some potions. It only cost him about £40 for my charms but when gets the money thanks to my spells he will be happy and I will be happy because he will bring me new customers."
Another thought strikes one: if witches than why not vampires or werewolves? Could they be put to some use in the European Union?
