At least little Georgie Osborne is about to get an education – albeit at our expense – on the realities of the European Union. Imbued with his fatuous master's slogan "in Europe but not ruled by Europe", the fool goes to Brussels (a good title for a book methinks) this week to learn that the UK has been well and truly stuffed over hedge fund and private equity regulations – and that there is not a thing he can do about it.
This, of course, will not be the last time that the grubby little Cleggerons will have to kow-tow to their real masters, which makes their claim to be pursuing "new politics" a bit of a hollow joke. I think we would prefer "old politics", the type where parliament was in charge and we didn't have our ministers doffing their caps to Brussels and asking permission every time they needed to go to the toilet.
But joke of the day comes from the new Lord Chancellor, Kenneth Clarke, who blithely declares that he has "very strong views" on the independence of the judiciary.
There is something not quite right with the brains of these people. This is the Euroslime who is content to see the ECJ over-rule the British courts – to say nothing of the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg doing likewise - thereby subordinating our courts to an alien and highly political construct. Yet, without so much of a blush, he can talk glibly about an "independent judiciary".
What is equally amazing is that anyone should take these fools seriously. They are not fit for government. They are low-grade, grubby chancers who should not even be trusted to sweep the streets.
