Brexit Party MEPs Turn Their Backs on EU ‘National Anthem’

Silly season has officially begun with the Brexit Party’s 29 MEPs turning their backs to the EU’s ‘national anthem’ as it played to open a new session of the Parliament in Strasbourg this morning. The Eurocrats were really not happy, with a viably miffed EU Parliament President hitting out at the new MEPs saying “You stand for the anthem of another country.” Getting a bit ahead of himself there, the EU isn’t a country quite yet – despite the best endeavours of those who run it…

Quote of the Day

Emmanuel Macron comes over all euro-sceptic…

“We ended the day on what we can call a failure. It’s a very bad image we are giving of the Council and Europe, no one can be satisfied with what happened over so many hours. Our credibility is profoundly tainted with these meetings that are too long and lead to nothing, we give an image of Europe that isn’t serious. We cannot hold talks with world leaders, in an ever more violent world, and be a club that meets at 28 without ever deciding anything.”
