Yet More Pro-EU Sockpuppets Funded By Brussels

Simon Hix Makes It Rain

BSE have a new line: “Britain is the best connected country in EU negotiations,” they claim, pushing a new report by the Economic and Social Research Council as evidence. Indeed Britain is so “well connected” that we have not once succeeded in blocking an unwanted EU measure in recent years. This is despite trying over seventy times.

So, who is behind the report? It was published as part of ESRC’s “UK in a Changing Europe” project, which is directed by Professor Anand Menon. Who is a “visiting expert” at the European Commission, reporting directly to the President.

What about ESRC themselves? They have just won the contract to lead the EU India Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities – a 1.5-million euro project funded under European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme. They are literally paid by Brussels.

And what of the report’s author? Simon Hix was previously directly awarded a contract directly by the European Commission. Worth £53,700.

Yet more pro-EU sockpuppets funded by Brussels, then wheeled out by BSE. Guido will be watching out for more…

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
