Aside from the usual paean to democracy, which lets most good men down, the man who should be the leader of the Tory party, Daniel "The British Ron Paul" Hannan, speaks brilliantly at the Tory Spring conference, receiving what seems like a spontaneous standing ovation - I bet hapless Dave was spitting with envy and wondering how Hannan had managed to sneak onto the speaking order paper despite the Tory Gestapo efforts to stop this troublesome priest of sense! ;-)
The usual folly about democracy, of course, is that it isn't being subverted by the political process or even by the EU itself. It is democracy that has caused this federal mess, the same way that democracy caused the federal mess in the United States.
But aside from this ideological inexactitude, for which we at Maturin Towers can forgive Mr Hannan, on the basis that there are only seven of us in the country who take this position, then it is another remarkable speech.
Marvellous (especially the hoary old Clement Attlee joke).
UPDATE: Hannan reveals on his blog how he managed to get onto the rostrum, via the machinations of ConservativeHome's Tim Montgomerie.
