Politicians are Better Off In the EU

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the Better Off Out campaign is holding a Better Off IN reception (junket) tonight at the Old Bank of England from 7 until closing time. The theme is that politicians, not the people of Europe, are better off in the EU.

There will apparently be a gravy train, a wine lake, a butter mountain, a pig trough, porky pies and other entertainments. Philip Davies MP and Gerard Batten MEP will be launching the “London Declaration”, in response to the Berlin Declaration. The invite suggests that you wear anything you like – “anybody dressed as a fat cat politician or as a pig will be particularly welcome.” Guido will try doing his best to help reduce the wine lake.

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
