Labour's Leader in the European Parliament hit out today at the decision of the Tory MEPs' ECR Group to admit Alternative für Deutschland into its ranks.
Glenis Willmott MEP, Labour's Leader in Europe, said:
"Once again David Cameron's MEPs are undermining Britain's ability to reform the EU and their own prime minister's negotiating hand.
"At the time the British people need their politicians to be exerting influence in Europe, the Tories are isolating themselves from the mainstream. While Labour MEPs are leading the efforts in the European Parliament for positive reform of Europe, the Tories are drifting further to the fringes."
