Barroso will fine MEPs that don't sit through his speech

Pretend eurosceptic, Dan Hannan MEP, reports that Emperor Barroso has decreed that MEPs will be fined if they don't sit through his rambling "State of the union" propaganda speech.

The electronic voting system - usually only used when an MEP calls a point of order when Barroso lies about the result of a show of hands - is to be used 3 times during the speech and MEPs that don't press their voting buttons 2 out of 3 times will be fined.

I'm sure UKIP's MEPs will do something amusing - turn their backs or put on a pair of ear defenders or something.  Dan Hannan will probably sit quietly listening to Emperor Barroso like a good little eurofederalist Tory.
