MEP Girling posts her January vlog update and talks about her constituency at last!
Wednesday, 18 January 2012
Conservative MEP Julie Girling has this evening released her January video blog from Strasbourg. In this edition she discusses the elections in Parliament of a new President and Vice-Presidents ("staged and stage managed; not exciting and not many surprises"), the launch of her new healthy living campaign (some of her ECR colleagues have signed up to the initiative with WeightWatchers!), the current state of play in the Eurozone, and - most far importantly - gives an update of some of the work she has been doing in the South West!
Horrah! Now let's have constituency issues at the top of the February vlog please...
Hailing from the truly beautiful South West region of the UK, Andrew now works in Brussels and is a UK passport holder, European citizen, and a twice employee at the European Parliament.
While the EU in its current form is far from perfect, he is nonetheless firmly of the belief that the UK's prosperity and place in the world is best served as a member state and not as an isolated bystander.
Since October 2009, this blog seeks to document the work that our region's MEPs do for us in Brussels. As such, predictably, it rarely features UKIP.
