The only MEPs featured in the report were French - Gérard Onesta (Greens) at least mentioned the environmental impact of running 2 buildings, but Joseph Daul (EPP) basically declined to acknowledge there was any problem with Strasbourg, and even had a go at the quality of the Brussels hemicycle. Daul is, you guessed it, from Alsace… Where were the MEPs opposed to Strasbourg?
The Europarl TV editorial charter states “The channel shall ensure that the plurality of opinion in the European Parliament is reflected, with due respect to the relative strengths of the political groups, in accordance with a neutral, non-partisan editorial policy.” Really? Seems they are off to a bad start.
I have to say, old chap, what the fuck did you expect? Oh, you expected them to stick to the terms of the charter? Why the fuck should they bother: who's going to remove their right to broadcast?
Well, I'm guessing that the only entity that can remove their right to broadcast would be the EU, so I'm pretty damn certain that anti-EU stories are going to be few and far between.
Can we leave yet?
