Slanted in what way? Slanted towards the truth perhaps, that the EU is once again meddling where they are not wanted, putting more people out of work in this country and forcing (as inky says) industr

Chrome 3 is crap, substandard, will not last etc etc etc..... Your bloody EU meddling again kije and of course you will be happy to see jobs lost to poorer EU countrys because that is what you believe

I know what I have read in the classic car press and from chatting to people who do know their stuff..... I have had items re-chromed in the past, it is a very skilled trade, it isn't something that i

As pointed out Baz similar legislation is coming in all over most of the developed world, so the whole world is meddling, you have just decided to unilaterally blame the EU for it, like it or not we would have had to adopt similar legislation even if we were not in the EU

Legislation may well have to come in, but it should be legislation brought in by our own democratically elected government; not by some unelected corrupt nobodies in Brussels

I think that is what the vote in May is supposed to be about, who would best represent our interests in Brussells, its not an in out referendum nor is it a ban immigration poll either.  As we are in the EU it would be stupid not to try to get out as much as we can and put honest, hard working Britons to work in there, although that will probably not happen

Strange, I saw a news item of Nigel ripping into the faceless eurocrats in the main chamber, fairly recently. As for a single State, changing EU policies, they can't even do this when they're given a referendum; "NO" gets ignored and they have to keep voting till they come up with the right answer!

SO?   No probs with Nige and Co;   they're not there to "make it work", but hopefully bring it down; so participation in "committees" is irrelevant, as all committee recommendations are voted on by the main parliament at the push of a button. So, from a Euro-sceptic perspective they're doing a good job !

Let me spell it out for you Observer as you seem to be struggling.  Farage was on the fisheries committee and was paid for being so.  He turned up for 1 of the 42 meetings to formulate fishery policy which Im am sure affects Britain.

Nuttall attended 2 out of 56 meetings of the  Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee which are also rather important to our country.

Coleman was  at one of 52 gatherings of the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee. Again important to this countr

 

Apparently they were always available for a photo call though, stood outside a boozer, fag in mouth pretending to be men of the people.

As for turning up to vote as their way of justifying their existance and millions of our hard earned quids, that party has the lowest turnout for votes figures, by a mile, in the whole of the EU.  Bone idle, moneygrubbing chancers.

Wasn't "struggling" at all, I specifically assumed that they wouldn't be attending "committees", which formulate the policy reports - SO WHAT?  The reports then go to the main parliament for voting on - that's where the voting is done. As said, they're not there to "make it work", but hopefully to wreck it.

Outvoted by the other 26 countries, any of whom have a veto at the Council of Ministers; thus Camoron's idea of changing minds, when the interests of the majority are of net recipients of EU funding, is a forlorn hope.

 

Uk,France and Germany could stop it Obs, if his arguments are good then you can win, that's democracy

Kije, his arguments are good for the ones who are paying in. but when the vast majority of the EU member states come to the party with their begging bowls outstretched, there is no hope of changing anything; either by renegotiation or even from within....

Think the Farage turkey is doing just that Baz, if we come out of the EU for good or bad him and his party become extinct as they lose all funding and reason to be.

 

that may be so, but Farage et al can go back to their day jobs in some form or other and still earn money, or they could join other parties or form a new one (maybe to get us back in again who knows :) ), Romania, Bulgaria and the other beggars have no where else to turn; they need the EU and they need our contributions...

But the Farage balloon ( he's full of hot air) won't ever have enough power to get us out of the EU  that's down to proper parties I'm afraid.  I would welcome a proper debate and perhaps a referendum on the EU as we may then get proper factual information on which to base our decisions not emotive or jingoistic kneejerks and policies designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator
