New blogpost published by Judith Bunting: Committees, Supreme Decisions and a Presidency
In her mission to communicate the day to day work of a MEP and bring the European Parliament closer to the British public, Judith gives an overview of her activities in the week 23-27 September.
In this blog as in her previous ones, Judith continues to give us an insight into the exciting and fascinating work the MEPs do on our behalf in the Parliament. For example, she attended the Culture and Education Committee meeting where a discussion about the levels of language competence across the Member States took place. Sadly, the UK came at the very bottom of the list: only 2% of UK nationals reach an 'intermediate' level in any other language.
She also gave her opinion on the landmark Supreme Court Ruling: "Like many of you, I watched eagerly as the Supreme Court announced its ruling. In such unnerving times, it was encouraging to see the right of our elected MPs and British Law be reinstated. Praise should also be given to those have been working tirelessly, and thanklessly, to ensure the case was given a proper hearing. Even if they are not your preferred party, never forget that WE elect UK MPs."
