After a criticizing remark from a fellow British MEP from EFD, Kordula Berg from ECR announced that she refuses to vote and left the Parliament. The jEUrnal managed to get an exclusive interview right after the MEP stormed out of the conference hall.
Kordula Berg: “They are empty-minded, anti-democratic parliamentarians – voting sheep! They want to delegate the power directly to Brussels. They don’t take responsibility anymore. Our main goal was to make a Directive, not a Regulation, and there was no discussion about it at all. This regulation is putting minimal and maximum protection at the same time – this is nonsense! I refuse to vote, I refuse to give sovereignty of Britain to Brussels – to the Union of Sheep.”
