Democracy in action


According to theparliament.com, Lib Dem MEP Graham Watson, the leader of the ALDE group in the European Parliament, yesterday told a public meeting in Brussels that one of the challenges facing the EP in the upcoming elections was to “stymie” critics of the institution and the EU and “send the likes of Declan Ganley back to the political hinterland from whence they came.”

Nice. So pleased to see we have representatives in the EP who are up for the democratic debate they're meant to be there to excercise - not.
Watson's rather shocking comments are a good reminder of the prevailing culture in Brussels - even in the Parliament - which says criticism of the EU is simply not acceptable.

This is the same Graham Watson who praised Prodi for sacking Marta Andreasen.
