The recent County elections saw a 25% support for UKIP, and knocking at the door, while my true interest is about local issues, there were a lot of comments about Europe and UKIP, so I am going to dabble in Europe. Clearly I need to have a view. We need the strength of Europe for our trade, and common standards for product help to make this a simpler platform, but need to limit the amount of control Europe has over us. Reform is required, but not independence.
In the South East of England, we are represented by 10 MEP’s and I would like to let you know about just one of them.
Daniel Hannan is a 41 year old Journalist who is a Eurosceptic. Not quite a Sampson trying to bring down Europe from the inside, but who seeks genuine reform and is very critical of European Integration, and has even written several books on the subject. If you are looking for some good pragmatic common sense about Europe then visit his blog, and if possible, go and see him speak. He has an energy and passion that matches the logic and sense of his convictions.
