Examples of “hot air” politics and useless committees in the European Parliament have been laid bare in a new booklet by Louise Bours MEP. As polls show a majority of British people want to leave the European Union, Ms Bours, who represents the North West region, has now made her EUseless: A view from the mad house publication available as a free download.
In it, the UKIP Health Spokesman highlights the activities of the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) and the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM). Ms Bours, a member of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy in the European Parliament, said: “All politicians are accused of spouting hot air, but in the parliament in Brussels it’s like a furnace.
“While not every conversation that takes place there is entirely without merit, very often it invokes Nero fiddling while Rome burns.
“Too often the parliamentary committees find themselves bogged down in needless debate about issues the EU has no control over, need not have control over, and more importantly should never have control over.
“My booklet looks at just a few examples of this time-wasting and empty rhetoric, and I’m making it available for free download so as many people as possible can read it.”
