I’m disgusted with these newly elected MEPs! Turning their backs when the EU anthem is played. This is appalling and they should be suspended indefinitely.
I’m ashamed of a nation that can do this. BTW it was reported in the Independent.

This is no way a criticism of anyone who wants to leave the EU or voted for them. JUST THEM!😡

What happened to manners and standards.

It is the behaviour of the playground.

I had a feeling they would pull something like this. It was clear it was in their plan to insult the EU. Have you listened to Farage addressing the EU Parliament calling them all idle? That's the image of Britain being portrayed and it reflects badly on all of us. Very sad that they're stooping so very low.

Ginny42 Tue 02-Jul-19 10:46:02

Just seen that it's in all the press. I can't imagine they're going to refuse their pay from the EU though. Hypocrites the lot of them. I may just write to each of them and tell them so.

And their salaries will be paid in Euros.

jura2 Tue 02-Jul-19 10:53:44

ayse- I do feel it is a reflection and aprt responsibility of those who voted for them, I'm afraid.

And their shameful behaviour reflects on ALL OF US int he eyes of the people in the EU and further afield. Utterly shameful.

Did they all do it?

I am going to check on mine.
It is extremely disrespectful and bad manners, whatever their views on the EU.

Callistemon Tue 02-Jul-19 11:12:51

Ah - the Brexit Party MEPs

Callistemon Tue 02-Jul-19 11:13:34

sorry ayse, I should have read the heading

EllanVannin Tue 02-Jul-19 11:18:32

Pro-Brexit ? It goes without saying--------

MawBroonsback Tue 02-Jul-19 11:21:19

Appalling - how would Brexit party members react if disrespect were shown e.g. to the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament?
But am I surprised? hmm

M0nica Tue 02-Jul-19 11:30:15

Childish, but not a surprise. What else would one expect from any party led by Farage, the arch self-publicist.

Riverwalk Tue 02-Jul-19 11:32:57

An embarrassing show and very ill-mannered.

Glammy57 Tue 02-Jul-19 11:34:51

Appalling and disrespectful behaviour!

GrannyGravy13 Tue 02-Jul-19 11:43:16

I am not a Farage fan!! Stupid stunt!!

I found it equally appalling that the Lib Dem MEPs wore yellow “t” shirts with “Bo***cks to Brexit” emblazoned on the back in the EU Parliament today (footage can be found on the Internet and twitter)

Neither are respectful or responsible acts by those elected to represent the UK!!

Framilode Tue 02-Jul-19 11:45:49

Totally disgraceful but not really surprising. That ridiculously childish and disrespectful behaviour is just about their level.

dragonfly46 Tue 02-Jul-19 11:46:44

Shocking behaviour by all concerned. How can they hope to be taken seriously.
Farage showing his true colours of course.
I notice no Brexiteers are on here defending them.

jura2 Tue 02-Jul-19 11:47:36

Is there anyone on here who would applaud their behaviour?

GrannyGravy13 Tue 02-Jul-19 11:51:38

I voted leave I cannot and would not defend them!!!

Anybody condemning the Lib Dem’s? or are they allowed carte blanche due to the fact they are remainers!

Daddima Tue 02-Jul-19 11:51:55

I think there is a typo in GrannyGravy13’s post after ‘Stupid’.

It is the kind of behaviour that has been fostered by the referendum and has spread throughout the UK.

Hence we have people attacked in the streets and a huge increase in racist incidents. The wife of a friend, living on the south coast, who is German and thus speaks with an accent told me recently of being abused in the street and of having to change her hairdresser because of racist abuse.

It isn't 'just' the MEPs, they are publicly displaying a common attitude to Europe and other Europeans which is now widespread.

Joelsnan Tue 02-Jul-19 12:00:41

Where is the condemnation of the LibDem MEP’s who wore yellow T shirts into the assembly emblazoned with ‘Bxxxocks to Brexit’?
Both actions confirm that the current rabble both In the UK and European parliaments who purport to represent us are only fit for Wacky Warehouse.

Whitewavemark2 Tue 02-Jul-19 12:01:42

I suppose they will all collect salary. What a grubby little party the BP is.

GrannyGravy13 Tue 02-Jul-19 12:07:00

Words utterly fail me!!!!

Lots of up in arms with regards to the BP.

The Lib Dem’s “stunt” is obviously ok with those who voted remain?
