A member of the Green group was caught also voting for his colleague in an electronic vote. German Member, Reinhard BÜTIKOFER was seen by fellow German EPP member, Langen Werner voting ironically on cheating in sport for his Luxemburg Green colleague, Claude TURMES.
Not only could this alter a decision this also entitles the missing member to an extra €152 in daily allowances if it is part of a requisite 50% of the recorded votes.
This is typical of the arrogance of the European Parliament and in particular the Green Group with the culprit BÜTIKOFER and his Group leader, Danny Cohen-Bendit laughing as if it was all a joke. How can we trust these people to make laws that have such a real affect on the United Kingdom?
