    Why exactly does the economic crisis call for more European co-operation?

    What ‘distortions and scare stories’ from the Democracy Movement were those then? Interesting that you don’t say.

    You deny the facts of the EU budget deal – that Britain is a major net contributor to the EU’s fraud-ridden budget, and our payments have gone up by more than 60%? Tony Blair admitted it himself in Parliament … you want me to dig out the quote? Not exactly helpful in that

    I note that Mr process Guy claims to be a member of a party that has consistently called for democratic reform in the UK… the only party that I know that comes close to ‘honest’ democracy is the BNP – are you a member of the BNP? – because it most certainly isn’t New Labour, the Conservatives or the Liberal Democrats all of whom are EU bum boys. The Liberal Democrats for example PROMISED that

    I also note your claim that the EU is democratic… that is a laugh. MEP’s are not elected… they are selected. If the Conservatives put a duck on the top of their list and a professor of economics on the bottom of the list… who would be representing us in Brussels – the Duck. Great system of democracy ay! The reason this system is used is to CONTROL who actually gets elected… it it has
