THIS blogpost by Dan Hannan moves me one step further towards the Better Off Out cause. He tells the tale of how the European Parliament is trying to stamp out any opposition to the great European juggernaut by making it almost impossible for small groupings to be formed. It also has the effect of making it more difficult for the British Conservatives to leave the EPP. And who should support such a move? Why none other than Timothy Kirkhope MEP, former leader of the Conservative MEPs, and the man who wants his old job back. Fat chance.
UPDATE: To those EU defenders in the comments, imagine if Gordon Brown proposed a rule which said that you could only table an amendment to a Bill in the House of Commons if it was supported by more than two political party groupings in the House of Commons and more than thorty MPs. He would be accused of heading down the path to a dictatorship. What is different here?
