The Telegraph lifts a story from the Suddeutsche Zeitung, reporting that the Bundestag’s counter-espionage committee is now so alarmed at unfriendly US surveillance that it conducts meetings to the accompaniment of loud classical music. Grieg’s piano concerto is the preferred choice, apparently. We think Hall of the Mountain Kings might be more appropriate.
Would readers care to recommend something stronger?
Something to send those fiendish spooks screaming into the open?
Early Stockhausen at full blast? Dark moments from Die Soldaten? Or maybe the rigours of Brahms German Requiem. That’ll drive them mad in Foggy Bottom.
