luxurious expenses claims by our dear El Presidente:
The news about the massive expenses claim was not well-received by MEPs of the Party for Freedom (PVV), who in Parliament (the toy one, that is) asked Mr Barosso directly to make his accounts public. And for this Daniël Stoep, the PVV MEP spokesperson, was called a 'FASCIST!' (NL) by EUnion parliament leader of the socialist fraction Martin Schulz (p).
In a tiring display of feeble back-pedalling (NL audio) Schulz later denied having used the F-word, only to later state he was actually talking about a UKIP MEP (Nigel Farage?). Video (with EN subtitling by Vlad) is below, so judge for yourself just how forthright Mr Schulz is...
