Daniel Hannan on Today

Much has been said about Daniel Hannan's spat with EPP and EU Parliament, with Devil's Kitchen being amongst the cheer leaders, so I don't intend to comment further on the case itself. My ire is aimed at those imbeciles on the Today program when they interviewed him.

What little democracy there was in the EU Parliament is being stripped away on the whim of one person because they don't like being asked to justify their votes. Furthermore, the EU Constitution Lisbon Treaty is being rammed through against the wishes of the vast majority of the electorate n this country as as well as many others. I could go on but I am sure you are aware of it all. So, what do the beeb concentrate on in the interview? Hannan's reference to the way Hitler came to power by removing parliamentary rights and insisting he has offended people.

Well I hope he has because we need people to be offended so they might then look at what is really happening to our democracy and rights.

All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. (Edmund Burke, although the exact words are disputed)

Anyone would think the beeb was funded by the EU the way they ignore breaches of EU Den=democracy and defend it at every step. Oh, hang on they are.
