How many seats does the European Parliament need?

It costs European taxpayers approximately 200 million euros a year to move the Parliament between Brussels/Belgium and Strasbourg/France. As a citizen of the European Union, I want the European Parliament to be located only in Brussels.

Yep. Totally ridiculous and a huge waste of resources (which pretty much describes what a lot of the EU does...). However, that's money that could easily be saved - sign the online petition to force this before the European Commission. The organisers are looking for a million signatures - they've got 900 000 so far.
