Good news from Europe

Now that’s something I have never written before. The first piece of good news is that the Conservative MEPs have created a new grouping in the European Parliament, the European Conservatives and Reformists. The second is that on Tuesday this group elected Michal Kaminsky to be their leader.

Mr Kaminsky is a 37 year old Pole who grew up during the occupation of his country by the forces of Soviet communism. He had the chance to defect but chose not to, preferring to campaign from within. His first speech to the European Parliament was a tribute to Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. 

The Tories have been accused of getting into bed with all sorts of extremists by the liberal press. This is a media fabrication. Let’s remember that the EPP, which the Conservatives have just left, includes Alessandra Mussolini, a fact the BBC always ignore. The bottom line is that the vast majority of Conservative supporters, and of course the vast majority of people in this country oppose an “ever closer union”, an aim to which the EPP is unequivocally committed.
