• MEPs return to Brussels for a special plenary session today at 1430 CET to cross-examine European Council President Herman Van Rompuy over the 25 March summit on jobs and growth, related to the EU's 10-year central economic plan, otherwise known as the Lisbon 2020 Strategy. UKIP MEP Nigel Farage will be speaking on behalf of the Freedom and Democracy group.

Van Rompuy has just published a book of Haiku poetry and in his honour we have produced some Haiku for the occasion. We offer these as a suggestion for his next poetical anthology.

Three hai-ku to be-gin
To oi-l the whee-ls of
the end of free Gree-ce
A lead-er of men
I res-pect dem-o-cra-cy
but with no man-date
I am pre-si-dent
I head gov-ern-ment, and yet
who knows who I am?
