Barroso Threatens to Fine MEPs For Absence from Tuesday's Speech

European Commission head Jose Manuel Barroso has threatened fines if MEPs are not present for at least two-thirds of his upcoming address in the European Parliament on Tuesday, Sep. 8th, styled much like the traditional US "State of the Union" speech.

In the halls of the European Commission, Barroso was rumored to have been overheard pleading into his Blackberry, "C'mon, dude, it would mean a lot to me. You should come, c'moooon!"
