Despite having the worst attendance record in the European Parliament, a large number of UKIP MEPs turned up for a meeting in Strasbourg. It didnt go unnoticed.
Never seen so many UKIP members attend a meeting in Strasbourg before…the subject? ….Members entitlements after Brexit!!! pic.twitter.com/9c1nn43t7b

Thats right – the party that wouldnt turn up to defend the rights of the UK fishing industry they claim to support was out in force to make sure they got the maximum amount of money from the organisation theyve campaigned to leave. You stay classy, UKIP.
Now, the results of the meeting are in the public domain, and you may find it sticks in the craw a little – or a lot.

That did not go down well with a lot of people, including these 14.

Can every voter in the UK get £150k for losing membership of the EU? https://t.co/YWxU5Ov8mR

Obviously, anyone in this position with a scintilla of integrity couldnt countenance taking the money. https://t.co/5Olqkp03Tu

I'm sure this money will be directed at a charity for assisting young people with job seeking given he's removed opportunities from them. Let's demand that. RT if you agree? https://t.co/2PGoBcvjpu

Some UKIP MEPs haven't been to work since 2016. Many of them in line for one off 6 figure payments and free health insurance for them and their families for life. It's called the "divorce bill" the thing @Nigel_Farage doesn't want us to pay – why not surrender your share Nigel? https://t.co/va2kbghfsm
