Where The Real Power Lies

I was struck by this headline in the Telegraph: "UK given approval for £2.3bn auto bail-out".

Business Minister, Ian Pearson is quoted as saying:

"We are grateful to the Commission for its swift response and approval of our state aid application,"

'We are grateful to the Commission for its ...... approval'? So we have to ask permission whether we can use our taxpayer's money to prop up our own industries?

If nothing else demonstrates that we are no longer allowed to govern ourselves, this does!

And MPs still believe they are the 'governing representatives' of we the electorate?

EU MPs might think that - but we know different!
