Tory Turncoat Tipped For Peerage


Tory MEP Geoffrey Van Orden, famous for sharing a Fanny with Kanye West, is a self-proclaimed “dyed-in-the-wool Eurosceptic”. On his own website he boasts:

“I didn’t become an MEP in order to promote the EU – I want us to govern our own country”

Last month he said:

“I oppose so much of what goes on in this place (European Parliament) and in the European Union. I think a lot of it is detrimental to British interests and indeed in the interest of many of our European countries”

And he threatened to back Brexit unless Cameron achieved “tangible change”. You’ll never guess what…

Today he has ‘done a Mak‘ and come out for Remain. Sir Geoffrey is set to retire at the end of this term. This will only fuel the rumours he’s been offered a seat in the Lords…

Quote of the Day

Soros on the pan-European elections to the EU parliament…

“It is difficult to see how the pro-European parties can emerge victorious from the election in May unless they put Europe’s interests ahead of their own. One can still make a case for preserving the EU in order radically to reinvent it. But that would require a change of heart in the EU. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed – continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant.”
