One of our readers has already pointed out on the forum that the Booker column today contains rather more than a condemnation of the odious Defra.

The lead item in the column is in fact an account of "the extraordinary secrecy and lack of democracy pervading the way that laws that cost our economy billions of pounds a year are imposed on Britain by the European Union."

This is about the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee, the body that is meant to examine every law proposed by the EU before it can be approved by British ministers and civil servants in Brussels.

Read the piece and weep.
