Fanatical europhile Pete "Teflon" Mandelson has admitted Europe is our 'domestic' market. During what can only be regarded as an extraordinarily rude and thinly-veiled attack on the USA's plans for regulating its own banking system, he revealed this peculiar - some might say unique - weltanschauung, presumably, by extension, believing that the United Kingdom is now no more than some kind of local trading area, rather than a sovereign nation.
Of course, we all know what he's up to: softening-us up for entry into the eurozone without a referendum while simulatenously trying to reboot the "only Gordon can save you" routine. Pull the other one, it's got Russian billionaire-paymaster yachts on it. "Dishonest" is simply far too weak a word to describe the depths of this hideous individual's machinations. Here's an example:

If anybody else is tempted to vote for these traitors, liars and thieves again, I will be amazed. That 30% of people still, apparently, are planning to, is amazing.
