Forever Under Construction

Hero of the day

The internet has changed politics – changed it utterly and forever. Twenty-four hours ago, I made a three-minute speech in the European Parliament, aimed at Gordon Brown. I tipped off the BBC and some of the newspaper correspondents but, unsurprisingly, they ignored me: I am, after all, simply a backbench MEP.”
Nevertheless the video clip of Daniel Hannans speech went viral on YouTube that evening, attracting more than 630,000 views in 24 hours. It became the ‘most viewed today’ YouTube video worldwide two consecutive days.
In an American TV program, Hannan stated he would have voted for Ron Paul if he could.

    Thoroughly depressing. I hate that the radical conservatives are the only ones talking sense on the economic and militaristic fronts. I think Ron Paul actually means it, but the rest of his policies really suck, but I don’t think this guy means it, just using it as a way to draw Britain further right.

    They’re all devious creeps, and I think the ONLY way to have reasonably clean leaders is to conscript them. If someone actually wants the job, that should immediately disqualify them for it.
