Thanks to reader Gavin Whenman, I have learned about a campaign to get rid of one of the European Parliament's homes.

The European Parliament should be located in Brussels

It costs European taxpayers approximately 200 million euros a year to move the Parliament between Brussels/Belgium and Strasbourg/France. As a citizen of the European Union, I want the European Parliament to be located only in Brussels.
To sign the petition, go to the website. OK so hold your nose over the citizen thing.

I know Conservative MEPs have been campaigning about this for many years, to no avail because the French want Strasbourg to continue as it boosts their economy.

Why is it that pro or anti Eu, we would all cheer as one if it went to Brussels?
I quite like the French, and love visiting France, but somehow giving them a bloody nose always seems the right thing to do.
