So long, farewell, auf weidersein, goodbyeee. Ladies and gentlemen, I am sad to announce that from henceforth England Expects shall be consigned to the dustbins of history. I say this with a heavy heart, but it is the case. And this is why.
Yesterday I was summoned by my Secretary General and informed that a formal complaint had been made about my posting on this blog. My activities were found to be in contravention of the Staff Code of Conduct.
A sad day indeed. Especially since Gawain has been rather good at giving us the lowdown on the absurdities of the EU from within the institution itself.
Of course, if you write insipid, naive, EUphile bullshit from a position of power, then writing a blog is fine.
Amusingly, of course, the EuroParl has recently been wittering on about journalistic integrity and media impartiality.
Can we leave yet?
