“Kill Strasbourg” petition gets a million signatures


I reported on this in May when they only had 375,000 signatures. They have just topped the million mark. Apparently only 15,000 of them were Brits so it is not only the Brits who can’t stand the EU waste machine. was set up by Cecilia Malmström, member of the European Parliament for the Swedish Liberal Party, to mobilise support for getting rid of the Strasbourg seat of the European Parliament. It costs European taxpayers approximately 200 million euros a year to move the Parliament between Brussels in Belgium and Strasbourg just over the border in France.

Well done to Cecilia for getting the million. I hope she takes it further now. Goodbye Strasbourg.
