European Union Members of Parliament aren’t into transparency.  Site on MEPs’ attendance closed

Creator of website intended to increase transparency shuts down site after two days, amid protests by his own party.

After waves of protest, the Italian Liberal MEP Marco Cappato today closed the Parlorama website, which ranked MEPs based on their attendance in plenary sessions and committee meetings.

Secrecy must be encoded in the political genome.

Thanks to Open Europe
