If you are wondering how EU State Aid rules allowed us to nationalise the banks, but do not allow us to nationalise a steel company that last had a market value of one pound, even before the people who bought it for that pound made it go bust, then you are starting to see the real point of the EU, and specifically of the Customs Union in which both main parties now openly wish to keep us.
Another hung Parliament is coming, however, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it. It has become a local commonplace that I am on 30-30-30 with Labour and the Conservatives here at North West Durham, so that any one of us could be the First Past the Post. I will stand for this seat, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Very many thanks.
