A political chess board, the European Parliament is not; it is much more akin to a free-for-all brawl, with tenuous alliances forming in one moment and crumbling away just as swiftly.
Every party touts their importance. Every party has plans for the future — even if sometimes that plan is to dissolve the European Union. Every party has a vision that they bring to the voting ground, the battlefield of the Parliament.
From independent firebrands to lesser known delegates of traditional parties, there is no end to intrigue within one of the most impactful institutions in the European Union, perhaps even the world.
