"Who Are You?" Part Deux
When we last saw Nigel Farage, Member of the UK Independence Party and Co-Chair of the Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group in the European Parliament, he was verbally abusing the President of the European Union, Mr. Herman van Rompuy of Belgium ("Who are you?"), over Rompuy's arrogant supranationalism.
I am delighted to see that Farage has not dialed back his rhetoric in the nine months since then. In his concluding remarks on the European Council meeting on economic governance, he chastised the Eurocrats some more.
I think Mr. Rompuy is looking even more hangdog then before, if that is possible.
