Latest comment: "Employed by the European Parliament"?! Now go away and spend a half an hour of your precious life on teh interwebs getting an overview of how the EU is put together, who its members are, what the three main institutions are and maybe you'll come away with enough knowledge to vote for your MEPs next year - the MEPs who will represent your country and be paid by your country... because they represent YOU. Just like Nigel Farage does at the moment (who, by the way, sits on a fisheries committee and has only attended once in his tenure... while he pocketed his pay... that came from YOU). Thank you, rant over.
