As a member of the public I get fobbed off with responses from flunkeys, as we all are. As an MEP I get responses from the ministers and chief executives who address the issues Iâ??ve raised.....

4. Being an MEP gives me access to information. I now have a research team in Brussels and here in the UK â?? paid for by the EU.....
