A YORKSHIRE and Humber Euro-MP has become the first member of the European Parliament to publish a daily diary on the internet.
Labour's Richard Corbett said he wanted to give voters an insight into the life of a Euro-MP.
He added: "We have to find new ways to connect with the people we represent.
"Many people just don't know what a Euro-MP gets up to on their behalf."
Mr Corbett hopes his diary will enable people to keep track of his activities and let him know their views.
He added: "This kind of two-way communication between politicians and people is crucial to the re- engagement of voters with politics."
