The Evening Standard Diary ran this clip today.
‘All sorts of potty ideas seem to emanate from the European parliament but London MEP Mary Honeyball has found an EU equivalent of the Early Day Motion which seems downright cracked. Italian politician Mario Borghezio is calling for “public archives on UFOs to be opened up and for records to be declassified.”‘
The aforementioned Mr Borghezio is a member of the political group which UKIP belong to – Europe of Freedom and Democracy.
I am left wondering whether UKIP MEPs are aware of this astonishing EDM (Written Declaration in Euro parlance).
I have to say I have rarely come across something proposing a greater waste of public money. Funny, I always thought UKIP were the self appointed guardians of the public purse. Well, perhaps not.
