MEP Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan has been escorted by police down a street in Brussels after he tried to gain entry to an invite-only meeting of the European Defence Agency.In a video posted to twitter, he said: “As an elected MEP, I decided to attend a closed-door, invitation-only meeting between Commissioner [Federica] Mogherini [who is High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy] and defence industry ‘experts’. Of course, I had no invitation…I wasn’t well received.”The video clip then switches to footage of Mr Flanagan being escorted by two police officers down the street as he continues to protest.“I am a member of the European Parliament. I am an Irish citizen,” he said. “I have a mandate to be here. I am entitled to be here. Is this what the new, free open Europe is about?…I had 128,000 people vote for me. I want to attend the conference. Why am I not allowed?”The police officers do not audibly reply.I attempted to attend the European Defence Agency annual conference this morning. No dissenting voices welcome. pic.twitter.com/7OaQmaqXwE— Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan (@lukeming) November 23, 2017
