"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

*Breaking: Roger Helmer MEP Resigns

Following Hannan's resignation yesterday evening Roger Helmer has also quit his spokesmanships in the EP. Full statement by Helmer here.
I can neither justify nor support our new EU policy.  In these circumstances, I have concluded that I can no longer continue to serve as a spokesman for the delegation.  I have accordingly resigned both my spokesmanships with immediate effect.

  2. Wonder who if anyone else will break ranks. Enough of them might force the Cameronites to collapse and allow the real Tories to set things right.

  3. It's worrying that all this has come within months of a GE - but then that was the plan all along - for Mandelson to help Brown cling on long enough for the treaty to be fully ratified and the copies deposited in Rome.
