One-minute speeches: Sir Graham and the 'unrecognised' laxative qualities of prunes!

Friday, 16 December 2011
Late on Monday night during the allotted period for One-minute speeches, Liberal Democrat MEP Sir Graham Watson raised the unusual issue of prunes and their laxative qualities in the Strasbourg chamber of the European Parliament. Sir Graham's comments have arisen from the (remarkable) refusal of the European Food Safety Agency to recognise the high fibre quality of fruits such as berries, pomegranates and the prune... Urm, quite. (The reaction of Commissioner Viviane Reding is priceless, and surely this alone makes it worth watching!)
