What blew me about this speech was not the words but the silence with which the European Parliament heard Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan out, as he went about roasting Gordon Brown. Imagine our netas keeping so quiet.
And the fact that the press ignored it entirely.
But then there is the internet, youtube and the US media.
On the other hand, the likes of Varun Gandhi (or even MMS and LKA, going by recent evidence) might wonder what's all this fuss about tame stuff like a prime minister being described 'the devalued Prime Minister of a devalued Government.' or 'Brezhnev era apparatchik'
