Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So, let's see : in order to have his pocket money cut, he has to satisfy BOTH of :
  • exhibit defamatory, racist or xenophobic language or behavior in parliamentary debates
  • cause disruption

i.e. if the other MEPs just sit there and nod sagely, nothing happens. If they punch him in the face, he gets fined.

I'll bear that in mind in case I end up in parliament :)
