Astounding, Articulate Challenge to EU Prime Minister re: Economy

Posted on March 26th, 2009 by admin in Political Economy

One of the charms of European parliaments is the formal process in which members can directly challenge the leader, without interruption, and at length. (Imagine if American politicians could govern without soundbite thinking and speaking-the mind boggles.) This video shows such a challenge to the EU’s Prime Minister on the subject of the economy.

Note how Daniel Hannan, MEP,  is extraordinarily articulate, lightyears beyond any American politician. Even President Obama’s skills are dwarfed by Hannan’s oratorical skills. Hannan, by the way, doesn’t use any notes or teleprompter in this diatribe!

I say this is brilliantly on target. See if you agree.
