Katy I completely agree that th elosers seem to have a disproportinate amount of powere. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see if it works….
In the meantime what I haven’t heard from any party or indeed any other Eurpoean government is a review of the cost of the EU and it’s gravy train parasites. There must be billions of pounds/euros savings to member states to be had in this organization from MEP’s obscene and often fraudulent expenses, which Nick Clegg openely admits to, to the cost of running two locations in Brussels and Strasbourg for no apparant benefit to the taxpayer, and all the other reasons the accounts have not be signed off for years. The party that had this in it’s manifesto would sweep to power in any Euorpean country.
