"I continually read the comments of UKIP MEPs as they rail against the mistakes of the European Union. Yet they seldom try to remedy any of these ills. Last month saw a prime example of this prevalence of posture politics over substance.
As many readers will know, I am a leading member of the campaign to end the Strasbourg Circus and last month the Parliament voted through a British budget amendment that calls on the Parliament to review the use of Strasbourg as the second seat. We probably all agree that this £200m vanity project should come to an end. Yet neither of the South West’s two UKIP MEPs even turned up to the vote.
I am heartily sick of those that say one thing to the public and then do nothing to further their cause in the Parliament itself.
I only hope the electorate take notice."
