- 161. Martin Callanan MEP's report from the European Parliament Tory MPs
Of course, we were supposed to be feeling "isolated". That was according to the newspapers with a federalist leaning - and especially if you listened to the BBC.We were meant to be marginalised and misled too, but above all - "isolated". That was the buzzword on every corporation newsreader's lips and every euro-mad leader-writer's spell-check.Yet isolated was about the last thing Tory MEPs were feeling as we gathered in Strasbourg for last week's plenary session. On the Monday after "Veto Friday", we felt united, hopeful, energised: all of those things; but isolated? Not that you would notice."Isolated" implies vulnerability, fear, even regret. On the contrary, Conservatives were feeling confident, invigorated and - not to put too fine a point on it - right.Inevitably, there was a backlash against us in the parliament chamber. On Tuesday, the EPP's leader Joseph Daul provocatively said the Prime Minister's veto showed we in Britain lacked "solidarity" with the rest of the EU. He said we should therefore forfeit our hard-fought rebate (or as much of it as Labour hadn't already handed back). If anyone still thinks we should never have left the EPP, please take heed.The Liberal ALDE group leader Guy Verhofstadt, a man seldom hindered by self-doubt or sense of proportion, pronounced that if the UK were not "at the dining table" as a guest, then it would end up "on the menu". Not very statesmanlike for a former prime minister, albeit of Belgium.

- 162. NHS Accuse Burnham of Misreporting Facts For Political Gain Senior Official Says Shadow Health Secretary misled commons
A senior NHS official has accused Andy Burnham’s office of ”misinterpreting and misreporting” evidence about taxis being used as ambulances “in order to present a grossly inaccurate picture for the purposes of apparent political gain”. Ken Wenman, the chief executive of the South Western Ambulance Service, says that Burnham’s team spun a Freedom of Information response from the service to make the stats look worse than they really are. Guido has his damning letter to the Shadow Health Secretary, in which he concludes “I am astonished that anyone would present such misleading information to the House of Commons.”

- 163. Nick Clegg cannot help lurching to the left. The Tories ought to keep him on a shorter leash...
There are moments when it is almost possible to feel sorry for David Cameron as he surveys the burning building of the eurozone and the extraordinary attachment of his deputy, Nick Clegg, to the worst of 1960s Old Labour thinking. Then the moment passes, as you remember that Mr Cameron threw away the chance to win a general election against the worst government in living memory – and then invited the Lib Dems, who emerged from the euro-fanatic wing of the Labour Party, into a coalition.

The European Parliament increasingly resembles the mirror universe from Alice Through the Looking Glass. When you step through those doors it's like you enter a parallel universe completely detached from reality.Nothing summed this up better than a debate we had last week ahead of the EU's make-or-break summit next week.

- 166. Huhne: ideology before rationality | Roger Helmer MEP
You’re probably sick to death of reading about Chris Huhne, but bear with me: this may be a new angle.It was self-indulgent of me to Tweet “Hurrah for Huhne’s departure!” yesterday, but I just couldn’t resist. We see again one of the oldest truths in politics: it’s not the original misdemeanour that gets you. It’s the mess you get into with the cover-up. Oh what a tangled web we weave, etc etc.I’ve been astonished by some of the comment on his resignation. Some are saying that Nick Clegg is alarmed at the idea of a disaffected Huhne on the back benches, where his “powerful intellect” and his “expertise in economics” will be a huge threat to Clegg’s leadership.Hang on there! “Powerful intellect”? And “expertise in economics”? What planet are they on? Let’s recall that in 2002, Huhne was co-author of a booklet “Why Britain must join the Euro”. This economics expert assured us that “Joining the €uro would increase our incomes and standard of living” (like it did for Greece?). That the €uro was a huge success, that its critics had been proved wrong at every point. Oh Yes, Chris.

- 167. Two Faced Chuka Is Back Umunna Slams Bookies Then Takes Their Cash - Guy Fawkes' blog
So Labour’s fightback is going well. With Ed Balls still nowhere to be seen, the cost of living campaign has been left in the expert hands of Chris Leslie and now the Standard have whacked Chuka. Despite recently pledging to ‘control the number of betting shops’ in his constituency because of the ‘huge concern that some streets in our area are steadily filling up with betting shops and payday loan companies that take advantage of our community, rather than help us’, the two-faced Shadow Business Secretary has accepted a £20,000 donation from Neil Goulden, the Chairman Emeritus of the Gala Coral Group. Coral have at least two shops in Chuka’s seat…

- 168. Will they hold a referendum on the EU?
The mood seems to be changing a little in the two main party leaderships since we held the Parliamentary vote last year to require a referendum on the EU. Then they were both adamant that it was a bad idea. The Conservative leadership said they would provide a referendum should any future powers be conceded to the EU, to be defined by themselves. Labour stuck to its position in government that referendums were undesirable and not needed. They after all gave away massive powers of self government at Nice, Amsterdam and Lisbon, but never thought a referendum necessary.

- 170. Chris White MP: The time has come for Britain to lead the way in developing a modern industrial policy | ConservativeHome
Today, the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills is making a speech outlining his views on an industrial policy. This is something that I and other colleagues have been calling on the Government to deliver over a period of many months.As co-chair of the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group – a body which brings together MPs, Peers, world-beating companies, experts, trade unions and industrial representative bodies – one of the most consistent messages I have heard from manufacturers is the need for the Government to put in place a long term framework for the UK’s manufacturing future.Government cannot do everything, but what it can do is to be clear about the sort of support it is going to give to industry, the sectors or technologies that it believes Britain can lead the world in developing and create a culture of confidence amongst British businesses.Manufacturing is particularly crucial to developing a successful industrial policy.

- 175. Roger Helmer MEP: Twenty questions for Conservatives about David Cameron's Government Comment
Twenty Questions for Conservatives...David Cameron gave a “cast iron guarantee”, in the Sun newspaper on Sept 26th 2007, for a Lisbon referendum. But after the Treaty was ratified, he dropped the commitment. Should he have changed his mind? The Tory Manifesto (like Labour & Lib-Dems) promised an EU referendum. Should Cameron honour that promise? Why did Cameron whip his MPs in Westminster to oppose an EU referendum? Both Conservative and Lib-Dem manifestos promised to address the European parliament’s travelling circus between Brussels and Strasbourg (costing £200m a year). Yet the Coalition failed to back moves by Tory MEPs to curtail it. Why was that? The Party had a commitment to repatriating powers from Brussels. It has made no attempt to do so. Was Cameron right to forget it? Do you feel that Cameron tried hard enough to resist EU financial regulation; the EU diplomatic service (EEAS); the European Investigation Order etc etc? Do you understand why he whipped his MEPs to support the EEAS in Brussels? Do you feel that the government should do more to reform - or withdraw from - the European Arrest Warrant? It is reported that George Osborne plans to make more UK funds available, via the IMF, for the €uro bail-outs. Do you think that this is a good idea? Do you agree that Abu Qatada, and other foreign terrorist suspects and criminals, should be repatriated, regardless of the European Court of Human Rights? Do you believe that the Coalition’s green policies are about saving the planet - or about political correctness, gesture politics and raising taxes? Do you approve of the plan to cover Britain with 30,000 wind turbines by 2020? Or do you fear it will despoil our countryside, raise energy prices, undermine industrial competitiveness, and drive families into fuel poverty? And that in any case the target will not be achieved, risking serious supply shortages? Are you happy with Osborne’s “static”, zero-sum fiscal model? Must tax cuts always be compensated by rises elsewhere? Or do you think that some taxes could be reduced without affecting revenue, and that such tax cuts would promote growth? Like the 50% rate, and National Insurance holidays for young employees? More generally, do you feel that the Coalition urgently needs a growth strategy?

- 176. How an Oxford degree - PPE - created a robotic governing class » The Spectator
If graduates from an architecture school designed buildings that were unfit for human habitation or doctors from a university’s medical faculty left death in their wake, their teachers would worry. The graduates of Oxford’s Politics, Philosophy and Economics course form the largest single component of the most despised generation of politicians since the Great Reform Act. Yet their old university does not show a twinge of concern.
