  1. Annoyed at Emer Costelloe (the Irish MEP) for saying it in English instead of Irish… apart from that, great video.

    1. You bet me to it, a Scott:)

    2. Im sure people in Ireland understand english, lets not be nationalistic about it

    Did they have to call the security council for another debate to get this?

    The UN doing what it does best: Talking instead of doing.

    1. Its EU not UN, anyway some people are never pleased

        Same bloody difference.
        Another bunch of chocolate teapots.

    2. “The UN doing what it does best: Talking instead of doing.”

      Eh? The UN?

      Illiterate much?

  3. Faigheann sé níos fearr.

    They should work much harder and better to really get it better. It’s still more talking than doing. Their intentions won’t make it good.

    1. Can we please have some optimism here, after all vocal support is as important as action itself

    2. Come on. When Obama said something on gay marriage (while doing nothing), there were like 100 articles. When EP reps say something, no one notices. They have done quite a lot in improving LGBT rights, but this matter is mainly the competence of member states.

      What they should do is push for a directive on recognition of all marriage inside the EU. That can be done on the basis of the EU’s citizenship policy.

  5. Good to see top EU politicians adding their support to “it gets better” campaing

  6. I’m so grateful for this.

  7. Oh hey look, another “it gets better” featuring a bunch of heterosexual people.

    1. There were LGBT MEPs in that video.

    2. in other languages ‘it gets better is replaced with ‘we are working on better future’

  8. Great video..altho the music is a little off putting. lol

    Nice to see that the members of the parlament lending their voice to support LGBT citizens.

    They should run the campaign in regional languages as well. Here in the UK we have English, Welsh, Cornish, Scots Gaelic and Irish as indiginous languages. On the Isle of Man Manx is enjoying a revival. Here is the Welsh translation for example:
    Mae’n mynd yn well.

      You also forgot Chav. Noworrameanlike? innit?

  10. Idiots

    If you live on a council estate in most of the UK or are from a minority that is being indoctrinated by the US evangelical churches or a muslim it’s defiently not getting better. Do something real or STFU

    1. The responsibility for that is your government, not the EU. What this does is send a decent message to Europe and the rest of the world about the change in attitudes towards gay people. Would you still be so dismissive if the EU politicians announced that religious people have the right to discriminate against gay people? No, you wouldn’t. You need to grow up and get some anger management counselling.

        Well if we got the hell out of the EU and dis our own thing it would be even better instead of these insufferable twats dictating how we should run our own country.

        1. Thats your opinion. A silly one given how much the UK has benefited in trade form the open market. The nationalistic bollox is from a bygone era, time to grow up and move on.

            By being dragged down by tin-pot countries whilst being charged £45m a day for the privilege?
            I think not.
            We could do a lot with the sort of money on our own.

          2. i think couple of millions brits living in other parts of eu would disagree with you

          3. “By being dragged down by tin-pot countries whilst being charged £45m a day for the privilege?”

            Try an argument with figures to argue against the economic trade benefits for the UK brought about by EU membership, not nonsense angry xenophobic rhetoric, then we can engage as adults, yeah?

            Good man.

    2. James, you’d tell us if you had a stroke or were on medication?

  11. Shut up closet case, adults are talking.

    Go have a drink, its all you’re good at it seems.

  12. nice video, Though I do admit that it would have been nice to have the Irish members speaking in Irish. I think the video itself was rather reserved compared to the American videos ^_^;
