Mick is in a state of shock after being called "the MEP who looks like the bass player from Jethro Tull" during a committee meeting with a neo conservative journalist. The two MEPs discuss their amendment to the report on stocktaking of the European Elections, where they aim to establish a free EU-wide TV channel for streaming proceedings from the European Parliament. Mick reminisces about the scandal that is the National Children's Hospital. In what would be a first for the European Parliament Clare ruminates on voting against her own "Daly Report" on fundamental rights. She tells us how the report ended up being an absolute mess and how that came to be. And the lead bullets ban is back on the agenda much to everyone's dismay.
