South West MEP snapped with some big fish in support for EU fisheries reform

Thursday, 31 January 2013
Photo: eunews.itSouth West Conservative MEP Julie Girling has been snapped stood next to people dressed as fish. The stunt was orchestrated by Liberal Democrat MEP for the North West Chris Davies (not in the photo) who went out trawling the corridors of the European Parliament fishing for MEPs to support the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). Next week in Strasbourg, MEPs will vote on its version of the reforms to the CFP including the proposal for the ban on discards.

Mrs Girling, who remains a member of the European Parliament's Fisheries Committee, also took part in the WWF campaign to ‘Paint a Fish’ and later shared her extremely impressive efforts via her Twitter account. Time to kill during Committee meetings?
