I never thought I would say it but, I agree with Nick Clegg! - UKIP MEP Gerard Batten
• It is not often I find myself agreeing with the Liberal Democrats. But I can agree with Nick Clegg in one thing at least.He said thatDavid Cameron’s pledge to reclaim powers from Brussels is a “false promise wrapped up in a Union Jack”.
In that, for once he is absolutely right. The Tories are lying to the British people yet again about the EU. Any ‘return of powers’ would need a new Treaty with the unanimous agreement of all the other 26 Member States – it is never going to happen. Cameron is just trying to fool enough Tory voters to get past the 2014 European elections, and the general election in 2015.
The Tories are just as much in favour of the great European project as the Lib-Dems. If you want proof of that just listen to the Tory MEPs, and look at the way they vote, in the European Parliament. The Tories say one thing in the UK and do another in the EU.
Calamity Clegg is speaking the truth for once about his boss Cast-Iron Cameron.
