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 Hannan‘s 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.
