Dan Hannan posts on the recent remarks of one of the EU President, in this case Barroso, that the existence of the EU is:
"..........precisely because it’s not democratic. Left to themselves, elected governments might do all sorts of things simply to humour their voters:
Governments are not always right. If governments were always right we would not have the situation that we have today. Decisions taken by the most democratic institutions in the world are very often wrong."
So this Portuguese Prat (Muffled Vociferation uses slightly stronger language, bless her) believes that only he and his colleagues know what the people want? Barroso needs to be reminded of how Ceausescu ended his political career - one of those involved is quoted as saying:
"it wasn’t a trial, it was a political assassination in the middle of a revolution"The only consolation for Barroso is that I doubt whether his trial would last five minutes. In fact, as 'cut backs' are all the rage, lets retain that excellent policy and dispense with the trial!
