EP update

For anyone interested, Mr. Farage, the European parliamentarian mentioned earlier who dared to be rude to the EU's new president (and to cast aspersions on Belgium, the president's country), has been fined 2,980 euros.

His response, on Twitter: "Sentence passed, letter from Parliament President: maximum allowable fine €2,980. Free speech is expensive in Brussels." Farage plans to appeal the ruling.

Now the one guy who said what everyone thinks has been punished, business can continue as usual!
