EU ombudsman: 'There is a crisis of trust across Europe'

Emily O'Reilly is the EU Ombudsman, the woman any EU citizen can go to if they feel an EU institution isn't working as it should be. She wants more transparency in the EU-US trade negotiations, questions the role lobbyists get to play in European lawmaking and once challenged the European Central Bank. She tells us her main concerns regarding transparency and whether she has seen things improve during her time in office.
