Petition to kill Strasbourg II

Yesterday the Telegraph covered the petition by the Campaign for Parliamentary Reform (see their site).

They say that the European Parliament should be located in Brussels only and that the second seat in Strasbourg should be closed down.

If you agree with the following statement you should join in: “It costs European taxpayers approximately 200 million euros a year to move the Parliament between Brussels/Belgium and Strasbourg/France. As a citizen of the European Union, I want the European Parliament to be located only in Brussels”.

As of 8:35am this morning the petition had 474,000 people signed up. They have picked up 99,000 signatures since I last reported on this 6 days ago.
