I can do little better than link to this post on the Telegraph‘s blog section, criticizing the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg for attacking the House of Lords for being undemocratic whilst speaking unfalteringly in support of his own special interest, the unelected bureaucrats at the European Commission.
It was not the Lords who decreed that many fishermen will be prohibited from going to sea for more a one day a week, nor which helps itself unasked to money from our taxpayers. Nor was it we who imposed requirements on our NHS to employ foreign doctors unable to speak English and which discriminate against British born and trained young doctors. Like the restrictive employment laws which are now costing jobs here in Britain all these interferences in our country and many more come from the apparatus in Brussels of which Mr Clegg is a one-time employee.
So we might ask our Deputy Prime Minister: “What about the Eurocrats?” Are they not a closed society in which power is entrenched in the hands of an unaccountable elite? Indeed, so much power that they have recently carried out coups d’état against the elected governments of Greece and Italy.
