How to upset Hans-Gert Pöttering

Who he? The President of the European Parliament, that's who.

And he has this to say:

"The elections to the European Parliament are of a greatest importance".

Well, ish.

And this:

"The European Parliament represents European shared values: The dignity of the human being, Human Rights, Peace, Freedom, Democracy, Justice, the Rule of Law, and the principles of solidarity and subsidiary (sic). Those values stand for our joint European identity."

Hmm. I doubt that more than one Briton in a thousand would name either 'solidarity' or 'subsidiar(it?)y' as European values but no mind, much of the rest is laudable.

However, here's you chance to cheese him off:

"Now is a very good moment to give the European project new impetus and direction. I call on voters to support those parties that are in favour of European integration and that are committed to our European values".

I would say 'Sorry, Hans', but I'm not.
