Leave the European Movement alone

The Bruges group has been complaining about the amount of European money going to pro-Euro pressure groups, most prominently among them the European Movement.

Now this is midguided. The European Movement has succesfully stifled new and original thought among the pro-Europeans for almost twenty years now.

Imagine what would have happened to the democratic side of the argument if we were dominated to the same extent by the Campaign for an Independent Britain or the Democracy Movement? We'd be dead in the water.

Let's wish the European Movement many more years of survival, it's one of the strongest weapons in the democrats' draw.
