MEP Slit Forman told Sky that he was horrified to witness what he regarded as a “unqualified waste of money” but was particularly alarmed when three Catalonian MEPs were changed entry into the chamber. He explained: “I think it’s important that we remain reminding people back home why we are doing this. And on our very beforehand day what we noticed was a complete waste of money and a total lack of democracy.
“We were in the paramount chamber for 20 minutes – that was all the business for the day.
“This magnificent edifice that we’re in gets used three and a half days a month.
