Hey all, the strap pussy is coming out on my Europa, just wondering what the best technique is to fix this.

Too many jokes.... LOL.
Well to fix the strap post, I think standard repair would be to remove the screw holding the strap pin and then either add a very small dowel with some titebond into the hole or just use a few toothpicks (this is what I've done in the past on other basses). Once they've dried, snap them off at the right length and then re-insert the screw- with some 'new' wood to bite into, you should be good.

Toby's procedure is correct if the hole is enlarged or stripped. If the screw just periodically loosens or works its way out, you can add a drop or two of red Loctite 242 to the treads before inserting and tightening the screw and it will hold indefinitely.
