What Have Tory MEPs Got to Hide?

“You lie and you spin, you fiddle your expenses and you break your promises…. To describe this disengagement and cynicism as a ‘mood’ is to underestimate both the depth and the intensity of the breakdown in relations between the government and the governed… we need to understand why this political breakdown has happened. A lot of it is to do with behaviour. The behaviour of a minority of individual politicians, in all parties. .”

Open Europe surveyed 79 British MEPs from all parties as part of their Transparency Initiative. Most did not answer, some 19 did from all parties. This issue is toxic for the above 13 Tory MEPs that did not answer. They will, Guido suspects, come to regret their high handedness. The Tory grassroots is restless about the still unresolved EPP issue and suspects that too many MEPs go native in Brussels once they taste the gravy splashing around the EU-train. They are right…

ConservativeHome is campaigning to make Tory MEPs more accountable, this issue will be used by them to leverage against Europhile nativists. Cameron would do well to order the MEPs to be transparent about their expenses before the breakdown with the grassroots becomes total. Else the suspicion will grow that something shady is going on with these MEPs…
