(UK) - A leading UK Labour MEP has today called on Conservative leader David Cameron to denounce his party’s MEPs who today “heckled and shouted like hooligans” during ceremonies to proclaim the European Charter of Fundamental Rights in the European Parliament. The Charter gives rights to citizens of member states of the European Unions – and includes rights for the EU gay, lesbian and transgender communities.
