The kind of political chutzpah that “Prime Minister’s Questions” junkies have experienced for years on C-SPAN finally made it to the floor of the EU.  British MP Daniel Hannan wrecks on British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a classic Tory beat-down of bad Labour policies, this time on an international forum which everyone could see!  Check it out:

I wish America had a version of Daniel Hannan to confront the rubes running our government in such a fashion!  I know our system is more moderate and deliberate, but the occasional bit of raw fresh truth from our pols would be sweet.  While Hannan is right about the situation in the UK, his argument is completely relevant to the current situation in America (minus the years of socialism, but give us a little time to catch up to British stagnation).
