American economic traditionalists have found a strong ally and friend across the pond. Daniel Hannan, a son of Great Britain, is a member of the conservative and unionist party in the European Parliament representing South East England since 1999. Mr. Hannan loves Europe, but believes that the European Union is making its constituent nations poorer, less democratic and less free.
“The truth, Prime Minister, is that you have run out of our money. The country as a whole is now in negative equity. Every British child is born owing around 20,000 pounds. Servicing the interest on that debt is going to cost more than educating the child. Now, it's not that you're not apologizing. Like everyone else I've long accepted that you're pathologically incapable of accepting responsibility for these things. It's that you're carrying on willfully, worsening our situation, wantonly spending what little we have left. Last year, in the last 12 months, a hundred thousand private sector jobs have been lost, and yet you've created 30,000 public sector jobs. Prime Minister, you cannot carry on forever squeezing the productive bit of the economy in order to fund an unprecedented engorgement of the unproductive bit.”
