00:00:20 SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Enrique GUERRERO SALOM (S&D, ES) : English translation : "The socialist group isn't going to vote on the next amendment, amendment 2, submitted by the ECR. We're not gonna vote, because, politically speaking, we decided that we're not in favour of the concept of a secret ballot, we want to see an open ballot and a transparent vote so that the citizens can see what we think about the resolution on the financial perspective, but our position doesn't relay to one individual amendment which has nothing to do with the content of this resolution, we think the content of this resolution shouldn't have any provision about how we should vote, so we won't be voting but our group has decided politically that we will vote in an open transparent way so that the citizens see what we think." 00:01:11
00:01:31 SOUNDBITE (English) Martin CALLANAN (ECR, UK) "I've never heard a more ridiculous self-serving speech in all of my time in this parliament. This amendment is very simple, it is so simple and clear that even a socialist could understand it, it merely say in one senses, which sais we should hold the MFF vote in an open and transparent manner. Now I know difficult concepts are hard for the socialists to grasp, this is fairly simple and straight forward : if you are in favour of an open and transparent vote, you vote yes, if you're not you vote no, if you are a socialist and you can't decide I suppose you sit on the fence." 00:00:41
