Bonkers Barroso: It’s EU or War

Who could have guessed Jose Manuel Barroso’s State of the European Union address would turn out to be a rant against Eurosceptics and Tories. Former communist Barroso reckons a Tory can never be President of the European Commission. As European Conservatives and Reformists leader Mark Callanan says: “a bit rich coming from an unelected bureaucrat”. UKIP loved Barroso’s line that they will beat the Tories into becoming the “first force” of Britain. Apparently their Euroscepticism is “real” and the Tories are “copycats”. Barroso’s main argument seems to be that if any country withdraws from the EU, Germany will invade Poland again. The argument that the EU keeps the peace in Europe is a complete myth, NATO does that.

The rest is probably best left to Nigel Farage:

He went on to call Belgium’s Guy Verhofstadt “the vilest person in Europe”. A tough contest…

Quote of the Day

The Daily Mirror has heard that at the shadow cabinet meeting, Nick Brown lost his train of thought so John McDonnell handed over a piece of paper to help out.

Brown: “You’re really helpful“.

McDonnell: “Yes I am. But it would be great if somebody could tell Skwawkbox that“.
