Edward McMillan-Scott

Edward Hugh Christian McMillan-Scott is a British Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and one of the Vice-Presidents of the European Parliament. He was re-elected as a Conservative Party representative for the Yorkshire and the Humber constituency in the 2009 election.
After his re-election in 2009, McMillan-Scott stood and was re-elected as one of the Vice-Presidents of the European Parliament in opposition to the official candidate of the European Conservatives and Reformists group to which he belonged. As a result of his candidature, he had the whip withdrawn and subsequently was expelled from the Conservative Party. McMillan-Scott had previously voiced doubts about the formation of the European Conservatives and Reformists group.
In March 2010, he joined the Liberal Democrats, a member of the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe in the European Parliament. On 17 May as agreed before the UK general election, he joined the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) group in the European Parliament, although he continues to sit as an independent Vice-President. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
