Conservatives vote to increase vehicle pollution

A typical, misleading, claim by Brexiters, from Michael Caine all the way down to UKIP, is that the European Union is run by the Commission. Earlier this month, there was an example of how Commission proposals are subject to European Parliament approval - and how conservatives are relaxed about the Commission when it suits them.

On 4th February, the Commission presented proposals to double diesel car emission limits temporarily. Green, and most socialist and liberal MEPs voted to reject these, but the Commission was rescued by the conservative groupings including David Cameron's Conservatives and UKIP.
