An online petition for people to sign asking Robert Kilroy Silk to step down as an MEP.
As Sky News puts it:
I have to say I do like that line "keen advocates of the ‘adding insult to injury’ school of thought".....
Keen advocates of the ‘adding insult to injury’ school of thought they’ve now put their name to a petition calling on the Silver Fox to stand down as an MEP.
Oh, what fun they must have had putting the news release together.
“All five of the East Midland's MEPs (that is, all of the region's MEPs other than Kilroy Silk himself) are backing an online petition calling for him to stand down,” they write.
MEP Derek Clark then puts the boot in: “Its not just that he hasn't been working while in the jungle, it's that he hasn't spoken in the Parliament since 2005. No one has seen him in the region for years, we even had a competition for anyone who could spot him.”
