The re-election of Martin Schulz as President of the European Parliament has been condemned as a 'stitch-up' by UKIP Leader Nigel Farage.
Nigel Farage said: "There are no losers among the EU elite after this election. Everyone is a winner. Of course there is an outbreak of mass hypocrisy. The reason the Federalist fanatics gave for appointing Juncker was his party, the EPP topped the poll in the European Election. And then they go and appoint Socialist Schulz as president of the European Parliament.
"This is a big group stitch up. For them, it's damn democracy – it's all about the carving up of power among the EU elite."
