European liberals attempt to save money on Strasbourg is thwarted

Yesterday, MEP Sarah Ludford reported on an attempt to save some money on the European Parliament's regular shuttling between Brussels and Strasbourg by combining two of the September sessions. (Cancelling the farcical transfer of MEPs, officials and documents requires a heads of government resolution.)

Today, even this modest cost-cutting proposal has been stymied by Conservatives and Socialists at the behest of their French and German leaders.
