What A Waste Of Talent

Can somebody PLEASE tell me what Daniel Hannan is doing in the European Parliament ? He is absolutely wasted there.

Over a quarter of a million people have now watched his calm, eloquent but ultimately devastating demolition of Gordon Brown's obsession with spending and debt. If you're not one of them, click on this...

This bloke should be in the Shadow Cabinet. Correction - he should be in government.

He's one of those people who wants out of Europe ("Better Off Out" , BOO) I think, so they can't afford to let him in mainstream politics even though 55% of British Voters agree with him.

Now over a million hits and what have we heard from the MSM ? nothing.

Yes he is very good in that speech - but would the style transfer well to the more adversarial House of Commons? He's be shouted down, shout more to make himself heard, cheered on, raise his voice, get shriller and shriller...and you can imagine how his words would sound at the end and what a gift it would be to the Mirror.

Also he is of course on the very right wing of the Conservative party particularly on matters European - he is a potentially divisive figure.

I'd need to see more than one brilliant speech to convince me of his credentials for government, although I can see how he would be a useful shadow minister.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Brilliant speech, 1.8m hits now, David must be quaking.
