• European Parliament, Strasbourg, 16 January 2018

James Carver MEP (West Midlands),  UK Independence Party (UKIP), Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD) group - @JamesJimCarver

• Voting Time:  The show-of-hands procedure was becoming tedious with several electronic checks following most votes, so UKIP MEP James Carver proposed that the electronic voting procedure should be adhered to forthwith. This was met with general disapproval and ignored by the Chairman until around 10 minutes later the same proposal was put by two other MEPs to which the Chairman willingly obliged.
