It is not acceptable, for any politician in the European Union, to have debates on reintroducing death penalty. And it is not okay to put the questions of migration and terrorism into the same pot.” 5. CUTAWAY: BIRGIT SIPPEL TALKING TO A JOURNALIST 6. BIRGIT SIPPEL (S&D MEP, DE) SAYING (ENGLISH): “I am afraid that Mr Orban believes we only want to push him down, but that is not true.
