Highest personal vote

A Belgian correspondent on Facebook queries my statement that Bairbre De Brún has a particularly high personal vote, and of course he is quite right; when you take open lists (as we have here) into account, her 126,184 votes rather pale into insignificance behind Guy Verhofstadt's 565,359. I haven't gone through the EU27 figures to work out if anyone beat Verhofstadt, but it's clear that several Belgians beat De Brún.
