Probity European Parliament style

Do you remember the fate of the Santer Commission, when the European Parliament flexed its muscles as a guardian of probity?

Compare it to the current handling of allegations of misuse of public funds by MEP’s themselves.

I have received no direct answer to the query I sent to the EP’s Press Office.

When I checked a short while ago, I found no information on the press web pages of the European Parliament.

If it took Hercules a day to clean the Augean stables, ordinary mortals may need more to get things cleaned up, but the time for the EP to start communicating passed many days ago.
