'Next to nobody in Brussels has any clue what the European Union truly stands for — beyond a flag and an anthem — and more crucially, where it is heading. And that includes the EU leaders and senior officials soullessly waddling through the corridors of power...
I've seen it first hand already. How can we reject the accusations leveled against the European elite that we are out of touch, when the top dogs in our Parliament and Commission are chosen through obscure quid-pro-quo arrangements agreed over Champagne and truffles in Brussels' finest hotel lobbies?'

Self aggrandizing, attention seeking newbie MEP stages a media event whereby he dressed inappropriately for a formal occasion and then cries victim when someone questions if he is who he says he is. Very disrespectful to other MEPs and ordinary Yorkshire folk who would probably like their interests represented rather than his self regarding stunts!
On the other hand some of what he said was true!

Excellent - an MEP who wants to change the EU for the better, not turn his back on it.

An MEP salary is £105,000+ £54,000 Expenses+ £4,400+ Travel and this one chooses to pitch a tent !! What kind of person is this ? Does he expect us all to live like this ? Or is he just a complete lunatic? I should imagine he's getting the Green Party a bad name. Then again to rough in Sheffield, where he was Mayor !
