EU Rules - What Rules?

Recently Daniel Hannan disclosed that the President of the Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering, asked for, and was granted, arbitrary powers to suspend the rules of the institution in order to disadvantage the tiny number of MEPs who want a referendum on the European Constitution Lisbon Treaty.

He bemoans the fact that there was little, if any, disgruntled comment from our media about this, which is an affront to the European electorate, and points out that it took a foreign newspaper  (albeit a religious publication) to write the type of article, last year, that our own press should have been writing. This same newspaper also last year produced a 'critique' piece which can be viewed here.
