MEP Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan didn’t breach the European Parliament dress code by wearing a T-shirt and jeans – because there isn’t any. A spokeswoman told the Herald that no specific rules are in place requiring parliamentarians to don suits.
“If they want to wear jeans, they wear jeans. I don’t think it’s a big problem. Yesterday, we had a Scottish member who had a kilt. There is no requirement to wear a shirt and tie,” she said.
