Speech in Strasbourg, November 16th: Be proud of you heritages if you can, I am proud of mine

I supported the amendment to reject this proposal on a European Heritage Label. As I believe this is an artificial attempt to create a European identity . Only in your twisted imagination...s does this identity exist. An identity that my constituents want no part of, nor the expense of paying for. We have no joint heritage, most of you have lived under totalitarianism either communism or fascism whilst we in the UK have fought against many of your countries for Freedom. Are you so insecure that you have to develop such a scheme? Be proud of your national heritages, if you can, I am proud of mine
