Daniel Hannan shreds Brown

I have just watched Tory MEP Daniel Hannan's shredding of Gordon Brown in the European Parliament which is tearing through the blogosphere at the moment. I have to take my hat off to him - he was clear, concise and most importantly spot on. The best thing is that Brown had to sit there and take it. Hannan's view that the country is broke appears to have been vindicated further by the news today that the latest government bond auction has failed (see here and here).

Hannan is now even being talked of as potentially the next Tory leader.

His speech is here:

I think Hannon would be a disaster for the Tories as their leader. He's rather right-wing and comes across as an arrogant shit - albeit a devastatingly on the mark one!
