The unelected official acting as head of the EU, Manual Barolo, has made the clearest statement yet in support of the UK's exit from the EU. As the Telegraph reports extensively, Senor Barolo has called on Cameron to honour Churchill's vision of a United States of Europe.
Churchill's support for a union of European nations is established historical fact. As is his complete opposition to the UK being a member. He saw a merging in particular of France, Germany and Italy into one fractious, squabbling federation, with the UK standing on the outside as an equally powerful player as this Babelesque Empire. He thought it the best long-term solution to another bloody conflict in Europe - all of which in the past have been caused by either the Fritzes, the Kermits or the Luigis.
In resurrecting Churchill's vision, Barolo has provided the strongest support yet from Brussels' unelected officials for the UK's new relationship with the continent.
NB Just after having written this and looking at my blog roll I notice North has already blogged exactly the same thing. I'm going to let my piece stand as I penned it quite independently. It's just a shame there's not a hack left on the Telegraph able to undrstand the irony.
