"For the implementation of the programme, a procedure with a clear set of criteria to minimise potential political risks has been developed. Events must be politically balanced in terms of thematic orientation and composition of actors or speakers. The EYE strives to be geographically and gender balanced. Briefings incorporating all event details will be submitted for review to the programme coordination before end-2013
Entrance security will ensure that only banners corresponding to the established criteria will be allowed into the building.
Political groups will have a clearly defined space which, although much smaller, will be allocated according to the Open Doors Day space distribution key."
Concerning the EP Youth Event, Paul Nuttall said:
"Bonkers Brussels bureaucrats have a neck spending 7 million euro on a propaganda event to make young people love the EU when youth unemployment is reaching 60% in Greece and Spain.
"Far from being invited to freely air their own views, the young people will be carefully restricted in the banners they can display and the on-message speakers they shall be allowed to hear.
"As trust in the EU plummets across Europe, the EU thinks it can all be made right by a ridiculously expensive propaganda exercise two weeks before the Euro election. But it won´t work!
"These Eurocrats can have their week of razzmatazz fun, but UKIP shall put a big frown on their faces come election night.
"The amount of taxpayers´money spent on EU promotion and propaganda is an absolute scandal. The EU Communication budget came to 2.4 billion euro in 2009, and I am sure it has increased since. The amount of money the EU spends of these events is huge but ineffective."
