Britain: crap

A dashing young Swedish MEP called Cecilia Malmström has started a campaign to get rid of the Strasbourg Parliament.

The idea, apparently, is to get 1 million signatures from across Europe who are in favour of scrapping the monthly trip to the Alsatian city, and then present it to the Commission, whilst reminding them that 1 million signatures equalled a "citizens initiative" according to their beloved yet (alas) dead constitution. So, a citizens initative to get rid of part of the EU - these pesky voters just don't know what's good for them.

Anyway, Fortress has discovered that Britain is lagging way behind the rest of Europe in signatures on this petition - pretty shocking given that we're probably the most Eurosceptic nation out there. So, FE issues a call to arms: get yourself down to oneseat.eu and sign up - don't let the Germans beat us at this!
