How do you explain the left’s antipathy to this “socialist” EU?

Truth is it’s the best hedge we have against extremism from both ends of the political spectrum, janetgas’s anti-catholic diatribe notwithstanding. It’s secular, liberal and democratic — you perpetuate the lie that electors have no say. The institutions are managed by individuals chosen by the elected governments of the member states and the parliament is elected by voters in each member state. The fact that most Brits don’t bother to participate is one of the many factors that led to the disastrous result of Cameron’s ill thought out referendum.

And now the man who was the subject of the original post is the chief advisor to Johnson’s government. I weep for Britain’s future.
