Re: Email your MEP

The EU parliament know this is bad, they pointed that out. The specific section was then redrafted, not by the parliament, but by someone working for the commission, who had drafted similar legislation in one EU country or the other (can't remember which), and ignored the objections raised.

It is a shame the EU parliament never exercises its ability to block legislation, but then what can we expect when we put people like Farage in there?
