More on EU ‘democracy’

From Daniel Hannan, a member of the European Union’s ‘parliament,’ comes a description of how that body operates (including its corporatist system): “European Parliament bars Euro-sceptic Groups
From the article:

What are they so scared of, these Euro-fanatics? After all, we sceptics represent no more than 50 or 60 MEPs out of 785. Why not treat us as an Official Opposition, thereby demonstrating their fair-mindedness and bestowing a measure of legitimacy on their institution? Because they can’t bring themselves to do it. They hate us too much. Or, more specifically, they project on to us the contempt they feel for their electorates, but dare not express. Unable to be openly aggressive about the “No” majorities in their constituencies, they take out their frustration on the minority of MEPs who speak for that majority.
