Send a message to Brussels

Mark Mardell | 15:10 UK time, Wednesday, 4 March 2009

The European Parliament has had some early discussions today of a super new project to promote voting in the European election in June.

The idea discussed at a meeting this morning is to put hi-tech booths in city squares all over the European Union's 27 countries so citizens can "send a message to Brussels".

When I heard about the idea I didn't know whether to laugh at the inevitable outcome or cry at the naivety of those involved.

I'll be eager to get access to the tapes and play the messages here.

I am sure those leaving London's pubs and clubs in the early hours of Saturday mornings will be forming queues to have their say. Or at least thinking of ways to put the booths to good use.
