Thirty MEPs are enough

There is little doubt that Joseph Muscat’s time at the helm of the presidency of the Council of the European Union was a success. His statesmanship and ability to help resolve different points of views was as sincere as it was purposeful.

Now I take issue with European Commission President Jean-Claude Junker’s odd comments but I applaud him for congratulating Dr Muscat on a job very well done.

More to the point, I agree with Mr Juncker’s comment that the European Parliament was “ridiculous” as only 30 MEPs bothered to turn up for the review of Malta’s presidency. However, there is another point here. If only 30 MEPs are needed to attend a critical review then surely only 30 MEPs are ever really needed to do anything at all. Hence the urgent need to cut the heinous costs these absent MEPs incur.

We can manage with one MEP per country. That would save millions of euros which could be spent on creating a European army to defend countries like Estonia and the Ukraine from Russia.

So well done Dr Muscat and well done Mr Juncker too for highlighting the rudeness and arrogance of MEPs who do nothing to help anyone.
