A UKIP MEP disgraces himself and embarrasses a nation in his attack on the president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, yesterday. His apologists try to claim that the European Parliament would benefit from being a bit less consensual and a bit more controversial, but there is a world of difference between intelligent criticism and vulgar abuse.
(You can find the outburst here http://bit.ly/9aGvPm, if you really must.)
What was particularly absurd about the occasion was that President Van Rompuy had just finished giving an explanation of precisely who he is and what he does. You can read it here: http://bit.ly/c7MrZf
Mr Van Rompuy explains how the roles of the presidents of the different institutions will fit together, and what steps need to be taken to make it work.Author : European Movement UK
