Some 2020 creativity that I indulged in to explain myself.


I've been a publicly elected official. Common things that people ask me are "How did you get elected?" or "How was it being an MEP?" I also get the occasional "All politicians are out to enrich themselves" or "The European Union is full of incompetent people" or "You must be really talented". The task of representing a diverse continent of so many languages, cultures, peoples and histories should be daunting to anyone - as a voter, I am deeply suspicious of those MEPs that sleep well at night. That said, I'm also very proud of my accomplishments as MEP, and deeply indebted and grateful to a number of talented, conscientious Europeans who helped me understand the width, breadth and depth of our Union and it's economic, social and political framework.
