"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."

Ok - I Give Up

I've googled and googled but still can't find any reference to yesterday's vote in the European Parliament that Britain should give up its seat on the UN Security Council in favour of the EU. I'll just have to accept the fact that the British mainstream media don't think this is a big issue.

In a way they're right - it was a Resolution about an aspiration and is unlikely to go anywhere, at least not in the short-term - but the intent was there when the MEPs voted in favour. On the other hand it gives us yet another glimpse into the ambitions of the EU so, on that basis, I think it's important. Our news outlets and journalists are so damned useless when it comes to reporting from the European Parliament. You'd almost be forgiven for thinking that they'd been gagged, or that there's some sort of conspiracy to keep us all in the dark!
