There's Europe Election '09!

After I complained about the BBC's lack of coverage of the EU elections this June, it's only fair that I point out that they now have an Election page. It's got videos on how the EP works, what Commissioners do, etc.

So you've no excuse for not voting now (!) - they even have advice on forming your own party.

Also, on their programme The Record: Europe, the BBC have had a half an hour long debate over the areas of social protection/free movement of workers, business, and environmental protection. The whole programme is here (in clips).

Good to see more of an effort.

  1. Still, the BBC newspage on Europe is pretty good, at least as an overview of latest news

    Regarding what the commissioners and parliament does...
    that whole system needs reform!
