How our MEPs see the EuroParl Plenary: the views from their seats in Brussels

Taking advantage of the latest edition of the EU Institutions Open Day in Brussels, I took the opportunity to join a debate being held in the European Parliament's Plenary chamber, and watch the debate from the chairs of all six of our region's MEPs.

Above are the views that each of our MEPs currently enjoys during debates and votes held within the Plenary chamber in Brussels.

He may have next to no influence or clout being a Non-attached member, but since he is sat right at the very back it has arguably given UKIP's Trevor Colman the best view of the chamber. Then again, he isn't there enough to enjoy it...

Note: the location of each MEP is governed by their political orientation and by and large by their status within the political group. As seen from the the Speaker's chair, left-wing MEPs sit to the left with the spectrum extending around to the right and far-right wing MEPs sat to the right. The group leaders sit in the very front row, the higher level group members sit in the next few rows and so on. The non-attached members sit right at the very back.
