Interesting item on EU issues by Danial Hannan

Found this over at First Post just now. Usual insightful work from Hannan, who must be bound for glory before too long.

Here's an extract (although the whole item is pretty short): "Seven out of the 25 European Commissioners are former communists - yet the only candidate who was deemed controversial was Rocco Buttiglione...".

Way back lost in the mists of time (late 80s/90s), apparently there were a large number of card carrying members of the CPGB on the staff of the Financial Times. Perhaps the ultimate hedging of bets....

Nigel Farrage made a similar point recently in the European Parliament:

Love him or hate him - he speaks with a clarity that is sadly lacking in politics.
