I get the occasional email from my UKIP MEP, Mike Nattrass, about dodgy votes he’s seen in the European Parliament.
Yesterday he sent me this email:
Votes were fast and furious and as usual with hundreds being taken by a show of hands, some were wrongly counted. I screaméd “CHECK!” after one particular vote was said to be “in favour” and they checked it on the buttons.
The President said it was passed but the check showed only 134 in favour and 499 against. How’s that!
Ok, if it was 299 in favour and 334 against I could understand the mistake but how can the corrupt mafioso, President Barosso, not see the 350 extra hands voting against? Simple answer: he can’t. It was quite obviously a deliberate fraud but will he get into trouble for it? Will he bollocks.
