No bottles with water in Denmark - level 2, A12
Europe has a new boss. It is Denmark. All 27 countries must take control of Europe and they change every 6 months. With the financial crisis in Europe, Denmark wants to show Europe how to save money. They want to save money on everything. For example, politicians won’t get bottles with mineral water at their meetings. They will get only tap water which is free. There won’t be so many presents for politicians. Politicians will use train and buses, no cars.
Denmark will spend only 35 million euros. It is not very much. Countries usually spend much more when they take control of Europe. For example, Hungary spent 88 million, The Czech Republic spent 136 million euros.
