Brussels has broken our power to rule - Booker

In his comment piece for tomorrow's Sunday Telegraph, Christopher Booker writes that "The EU has become a lumbering, unaccountable mess" and notes that "The latest findings of Eurobarometer, the EU’s own polling organisation, show that less than half its citizens now believe it is a “good thing”. In many countries, its popularity is at record lows, and only 19 per cent see the EU as “democratic” (in Britain, Finland and Latvia this is as low as 10 per cent)."

In answer to what the EU Parliament considered a lacklustre speech by one of the EU's four presidents - yup, thats right, four presidents (most states manage with just one, but we are talking EU here) all the numpties that constitute the Parliament's MEPs can do is call for 'more Europe'!

Booker reckons that "...........there is nothing we can do about it – until eventually the whole lumbering, labyrinthine, unaccountable, undemocratic mess implodes under the weight of its own contradictions". Well, sorry, but I don't have the time left to wait for that glorious day, so I reckon that it is our duty to hasten that day.

Having 'liberated Europe' once, it should be a piece of cake the second time.

The first time we did it by going into serious hock with the Americans and with their military assistance. I don't think either is forthcoming under Obama rule so how would you suggest we hasten the day?
