The Tories' new mates in Europe

Here's some quotes from a few of the Tories' new mates in the EU:

Polish Law and Justice Party

Artur Gorski, a Polish MP from the rightwing PiS party, warned that the victory of the ‘black messiah of the new left [Barack Obama]’, a ‘buddy of a leftwing terrorist’ would mean ‘an impending catastrophe, the end of the civilisation of the white man.'

Homosexuals have been accused by the party of being a cultural and biological threat to the Polish nation, a threat to ‘natural law, marriage and family.’ Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw has announced that ‘homosexuals should not be allowed to teach’. Jaroslaw's twin brother Lech is the President of Poland. Jaroslaw once said, ‘The affirmation of homosexuality will lead to the downfall of civilisation.’”

The Czech Civic Democrats

Vaclav Klaus, founder of the ODS, "Global warming is a false myth and every serious person and scientist says so."

There will be much more. Here is the full list (from PoliticsHome):

Belgium: Lijst Dedecker (LDD), with 1 MEP in the New Group

Czech Republic: Civic Democratic Party (ODS), with 9 MEPs

Finland: The Centre Party (Keskusta) sits in the Liberal (ALDE) group but one of its MEPs is now joining the New Group.

Hungary: Hungarian Democratic Forum (MDF) with 1 MEP

Latvia: Latvian National Independence Movement (TB/LNNK) with 1 MEP

The Netherlands: ChristianUnion (ChristenUnie) with 1 MEP

Poland: Law & Justice (PiS) with 15 MEPs

  1. There are some very disreputable parties in the other EU groupings. The broad areas of agreement in the new Conservative-led Grouping are what is most important.

    This is a major achievement - the Eurofederalists will at last be challenged - which is why they will resort to innuendo, smears and blatent lies to try and prevent it.

    I sincerely hope Dan Hannan is leading the Group.
