My little joke.... I refer to the fact that Parliament returned yesterday. The US Congress returns today, and a special session of the French parlement is being held today and tomorrow.
US House of Representatives
French Assemblee nationale
(the French Parlement sites are available in English - from the home pages above)
Of course, the European Parliament beat everyone - returning for a committee week last Monday. The next plenary session will be held in Strasbourg on 12th - 15th September. A weekly summary of events in the European Parliament is available here, while the Draft Agenda for the September plenary is accessible here.
