I think the current that runs underneath this self-evident frustration goes something like this ... we, the Allies, fought two world wars in defence of freedom of speech and thought. It financially bankrupted us in doing so, as standing up for ones principles often does. Now, so much of our daily private and corporate lives are monitored, controlled and shaped by unelected persons that somehow, mysteriously, gravitate the the centres of power. I am not by nature 'Eurosceptic' as I do believe that we in Europe share far more culture than ever divided us: but I do wonder who these faceless bureaucrats are, what their credentials for telling you and I how we should live are, and whether they are or ever were employable in the real world of industry.
I ask myself this question of the political class ... 'would I employ you to mind the corner store for a week?'
