Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"It's a bad day for the European Parliament," said Pieter Liese, an EPP lawmaker who acted as rapporteur of the ETS reform.

Liese was immediately cut off by jeers, forcing Metsola to intervene and demand silence.

No Pete, it's a bad day for the EPP. It's a normal day in a normal parliament.

"I think it's a shame that the far-right and the Socialist and the Greens have voted together," Liese said. "Democracy means to respect the Parliament and to have a reduction of the damage, to give it a second try. All those who voted against today can think twice. Please don't kill the ETS."

Drape yourself in virtue, Pete! The EPP watered down the climate goals, so the Socialist and Greens killed the bill.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
