EU activities

The European Parliamentary Research Service has just issued this document: http://epthinktank.eu/2015/05/05/activity-of-the-european-council/. I find it difficult to work out what it specifically represents, because it has clearly been written in another official language and translated rather mechanically. However, the graphs do point up how much more active the European Parliament is than the other institutions. What a pity that the UK in 2014 returned so many UKIP MEPs whose influence - when they are actually present - has been overwhelmingly regressive.

Additionally, that great bogey of Conservatives and 'Kippers, the European Commission, is far less significant in conclusive meetings.
