Iain Dale is reporting that Dan Hannan has been ejected from the European People's Party. I take a different view to Iain on this and see the ejection as an abject humiliation for the Tories. I think that implying that Hans-Gert Poettering, German President of the EPP, was acting in the manner of Nazi, the reason Hannan has been ejected, is grossly offensive. What's worse is that this type of behaviour is a pattern- disruption and petty obstruction is the order of the day. It is completely tolerated by the Tory leadership. It's ironic that for a party that is so sceptical about Europe, the Tories are so obsessed by it.
Footnote: Good luck to Celtic against Barcelona tonight.
