Minorities not Important

Being an individualist, I am generally opposed to group politics, preferring the concept of equality under the law, to special rights for pressure groups. That said, I am somewhat confused when champions of such group politics only apply them to certain chosen categories.
In a press conference after the vote, Mr Borrell said "it would be exaggerated to say that it is a large group" adding that "it is only 20%".
In most of our Post Modern, Multicultural, Politically Correct nations, groups representing far less than 20% are considered important, why the difference here? Besides, MEP’s from parties that are not specifically Eurosceptic are likely to represent the Euro Fanatic wing of their parties. More nationally minded souls are likely to try for national parliaments, plus those that have been on the gravy train for a while go native. So the MEP’s views on the EU are unlikely to represent those of their constituents.
