UKIP MEP Bloom fined £1,800 for disruptive Nazi outburst

Tuesday, 14 December 2010
UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom has been stripped of his €300 daily expenses allowance for one week as punishment for interrupting last month's session of the European Parliament with an outburst of Nazi motto "Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer (‘One People, One Empire, One Leader’) towards German MEP Martin Schulz.

Jerzy Buzek, the Polish incumbent President of the Parliament, told the assembly on Monday evening as it convened for its final session of 2010 that Mr Bloom would not be allowed to receive a per diem of the next seven days because of his "behaviour during the last session" and his refusal to apologise.

In response, Mr Bloom has posted a scathing message on his Twitter account that reads: “Been fined £1799 for calling a fascist a fascist! Why did Schulz not get fined when he insulted other MEPs?
