On Tuesday, I was given Nigel Farage’s slot and I had the opportunity to put a one-minute question to the Commission President, Jose Manuel Barroso. He has one minute to respond, I have thirty seconds to respond to his response and then he has a further thirty seconds to respond to mine. All in all, it takes three minutes. A wonderful exercise in democracy … I’m sure you would agree?
