It's back to Strasbourg this week for MEPs as they return to France for their first plenary sitting since the summer recess, reported BBC. 

Jean-Claude Juncker will take centre-stage with his third "state of the union" speech as European Commission President on Wednesday.

He will no doubt be hoping the stalls are busier than during his last appearance - when a poor turnout led him to brand MEPs "ridiculous".

As ever, the event will be a mixture of rhetoric and policy, offering him a chance to set out his stall for the year ahead.
