No, not that seedy lot down in Westminster – as if that mattered. Bruno Waterfield is taking the temperature of our real government in Brussels.
Imagine if there were rumours of changes in our local government in London, with the secretary of state for health and the justice secretary positions in the melting pot. The media would be crawling all over it. Yet, positions of equal (or greater) importance in Brussels are largely ignored – except by Bruno.
The culture of denial – "bias by omission" as Lord Pearson put it – is one of the most insidious phenomena of our time.
