"We're all reformers now" said UKIP's Nigel Farage yesterday, as he stood along side other party leaders in the European Parliament.
In a rare move UKIP have agreed to work along side the likes of Labour, Tories and the Lib Dems to push for greater transparency in EU decision making.
At present Ministers from all 25 countries meet regularly behind closed doors in the European Council, and debate and vote on EU legislation.
After they have reached a general agreement, they usually give wildly different views of the debate, each explaining how they triumphed.
In attempting to put an end to this secrecy, Farage found himself in agreement with Labour's Gary Titley, who described the decision making process as "almost medieval."
Farage was in full support stating, " While we are in the EU, we want it to be as open and democratic as possible."
