Respectable Fascism

The moderate Tory MEP, Edward McMillan-Scott had the Tory whip withdrawn from him for standing against Michael Kaminski, Leader of the Polish Law and Justice Party (PiS)for one of the European Parliament's Vice Presidency. The Conservatives and PiS make up the Conservative and Reformist Group (ECR) in the EP. The agreement was for Kaminski to have a free run at the VP whilst Timothy Kirkhope MEP the Tory leader in Brussels headed the new ECR Group, but because Kaminski was beaten by McMillan-Scott, Kirkhope had to give the leadership to Kaminski. McMillan- Scott gives his take on Kaminski and PiS to the Yorkshire Post.

We must all heed McMillan- Scott's call for 'respectable fascism' to be stopped.

David Cameron's ridiculous stance in Europe should be publicised more widely. I can't understand why the other parties haven't made a bigger deal about all this.

Press coverage of anything to do with european politics is appalling but I suppose that is a response to public apathy. Specialised blogs like Jon Worth's or Nosemonkeys is essential.
