"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."

Who Is Michael Shackleton?

Shackleton is the Head of the European Parliament Office in London. In other words he is a dyed-in-the-wool europrat. He's an unelected nobody, steeped in the Great British tradition of selling this country down the river. His main feat was setting up EuroParlTV in 2008. THIS is from 2009 and things haven't improved since then although, true to form, he has been promoted for failure.

Here he is, with some colleagues (and wine and canapes), and a few choice words on the powerful lobby groups and NGOs operating between government and the people. Note the title of the chap at about 0.23 - Head of the European Commission Office in London; there must be millions of these creeps in the woodwork all Head or Vice-Chair or CEO of this or that unelected body.

Quote: "If you choose to elect the wrong MEP, because people don't turn out for the election, sorry, that ain't the fault of the EU, it's the fault of the democratic process in this country." That's true.
