As you may know (or not) there exists a stubborn ritual within the European Parliament which consists of moving the whole Parliament from Brussels to Strasbourg a couple of days each month. The only reason for this is that France wants it so much. The cost of this procedure, approximately 200 million euros a year is largely paid for by the other member states anyway, or actually, by the European taxpayers.
This is why a couple of Member of Parliament from different parties and different countries have launched a campaign to put a stop to this ridiculous waste of money. They will need one million signatures on their petition to be able to get this item on the agenda of the European Commission.
Please go to: www.oneseat.eu and place your signature so we can put a stop to this ridiculous waste of funds and the circus of moving the parliament to Strasbourg. At the moment of writing this mail there are already 716.091 European citizens who have signed the petition.
