borg12Later in the afternoon the plenary session hosted the European Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, Joe Borg (he is Maltese). There was a wide-ranging debate covering both the integrated maritime policy and the review of the common fisheries policy. In an extraordinary performance, Borg replied to each and every question put to him in great detail and without referring to notes or the officials who had accompanied him. He was a real ‘master of the dossiers’. Brilliant stuff.
