Peter Mandelson's post-democratic era driven by the European Union really is here. A recent meeting between Irish MEPs and the EU's Economic Commissioner Olli Rehn to talk about the economic situation in Ireland had to be held in secret, with the contents of what Rehn said having to be confidential. In other words MEPs were barred from telling their constituents of the EU's plans and approach to their financial crisis. Irish MEP Paul Murphy was kicked out of the meeting after refusing to keep the contents of the meeting a secret. Shame on those MEPs who went along with this charade, cosying up to the EU's elite rather than doing their job and representing the people of their country.
Either I'm going barmy, or this is the type of politics has never been done before in such a blatantly anti-democratic manner.
