Now, I read quite a bit about the EU (know your enemy!!) but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one from either the candidates standing for EU Commissioner or from the European Parliamentary parties. How can I vote if there is nothing? Of course, the other difficulty is reading articles where politicians talk about Social Europe, taxation etc without knowing what they are referring to specifically and how they believe it will be achieved – although I suspect many of these people are talking about more Europe!!
