I saw the picture in a Romanian newspaper:Hanne Dahl, a Danish MEP from the eurosceptic party JuniBevægelsen (Independence/Democracy Group) has brought her 3 month old baby to the EP session last week.
According to press reports, Dahl did not intend to make a political statement but needed to take her child because her husband could not be in Brussels that day.
Yet, she - and her party - are now using the international attention that the picture has brought to them to make a case for MEPs who want to go on parental leave. So far, this is not possible - MEPs have the choice to leave the European Parliament or simply remain on duty and letting their children with a partner.
Can it be that a eurosceptic deputy brings some positive attention to the European Parliament...?!
