MEPs defend their voting record

Six months ago, a project was to set up to find out just how MEPs vote in the European Parliament.

VoteWatch has now published its findings - with some pretty surprising results.

Simon Hix, Professor of European & Comparative Politics at the London School of Economics and founder of VoteWatch gives the programme his analysis.

Also joining Shirin to discuss the findings are

• Edward McMillan-Scott, British Independent Conservative MEP

• Wolf Klinz German Liberal MEP
