Brexit Party MEPs travelled to Brussels to sign in before they officially take their seats during the first week of July. On arrival, Ann Widdecombe, the Brexit Party MEP for South West England discovered that she would have to “jump” to reach her locker. It comes as Brexit Party MEPs claimed chauffeur-driven Mercedes cars were offered to the new politicians to take them to Parliament from the train station, “shiny new iPads” handed out and cameras were restricted in certain areas.
In the footage, posted by the Brexit Party on Twitter, Ms Widdecombe, 71, is seen reaching high for her locker.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Ms Widdecombe said: “I don’t know whether anyone has asked them to change it, but I can reach it if I jump.”
“I am very agile. At the moment I’ve been jumping.”
Asked about the European Union being competent enough to provide chauffeur-driven Mercedes, but not able to organise an appropriate locker, Ms Widdecombe said: “They didn’t know I was as short as I am, but it does seem extraordinary”.
