Yesterday the Foreign Secretary, William Hague, casually dismissed demands from Conservative backbenchers to give Parliament the power to veto new EU laws. This is another example of William Hague’s transformation from leading the Eurosceptic movement that campaigned against the Euro to becoming another cowed Europhile from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Viviane Reding has come out in favour of a United States of Europe, saying that political union should be on the agenda in the upcoming EU elections (that are four months away) and doing so would be ‘our best weapon against the Euro-sceptics: to explain to our citizens that their vote broadly matters.’  Her comments reflect… Read more

Today’s Guardian carries a reasonably fair-minded comment piece by John Harris, entitled ‘It’s not racist to be anxious over large-scale immigration’.

Today the EU had its credit rating lowered by the Standard & Poor’s credit rating agency from AAA to AA+. This comes just as it is becoming abundantly clear that, while Britain and America are showing signs of recovery, the EU is still heading for the economic abyss.

Yesterday a report was leaked from the Home Office which contained plans to cap EU migration and limit their access to welfare. This comes only two weeks before restrictions on free movement are lifted on Romania and Bulgaria. It is a classic example of our government making a show of playing catch up with public opinion while… Read more
