Expenses Milker Beaten by the Udder Guy mdi-fullscreen

Further to Guido’s little delve into the MEP world this morning, breaking news from Brussels is that Martin Callanan has creamed the controversal Richard Ashworth who featured on the blog this morning. After the expenses milking and previous history of his opponent, it’s not hard to see how Callanan got over 50% in the first round.

Somehow Guido doubts Ashworth will be keeping the Agricultural brief, there is plenty more scandal on that front…

UPDATE: A high-ranking euro-co-conspiritor gets in touch “Your Ashworth stuff was widely discussed among MEPs before the vote and contributed to him falling from favourite to third-place also ran. As a result of this, the Conservatives over here have elected their first ever Eurosceptic leader.” We shall see about that last part, but always nice to hear from another happy reader.
