Worth a vote

As you may know it is not unusual for MEPs to table hundreds, sometimes thousands, of amendments to European legislation.   This one from a Dutch MEP is particularly beautifully drafted....
Amendment  36


Draft opinion
Amendment
2. Agrees that Parliament would be more effective and cost-efficient if it were located in a single place; resolves, therefore, to propose Treaty changes under Article 48 of the TEU.
2. Agrees that Parliament would be most effective and cost-efficient if it were notlocated in any place at all but immediately abolished;

...  sadly this amendment unlikely to garner a majority but if we get the original language through then we are another step towards ending the hugely wasteful Strasbourg Circus.
