Fantastic. Very well done. A Royal kicking. Did you see that glimpse of the silly, stupid man.A very public fisting. Magic!
March 24, 2009 at 05:51 PM
Superb. Shame BBC and Sky News won't run with it.

He followed Farage of UKIP who was also superb.
Brown smirked throughout

Dan Hannan would take Cameron to the cleaners!
I saw him last week on the Daily Politics Show with Andrew Neil, again he was superb.
This man has to be brought into Westminster Politics. A real winner.
When will Cameron do this job on Brown?

Bloody hell. Bloody stupendous. BBC won't run it of course, can't have the peasants knowing what's going can we.

When Gordon met Nigel:
March 24, 2009 at 08:01 PM
Wow. 11/10 Mr Hannan.
March 24, 2009 at 08:10 PM
Unfortunately if Cameron tried this on Brown at Westminster, Gorbals Mick would rule it out of order.

Glad Brown finds it all so funny, no wonder the whole country hates him so much.
March 24, 2009 at 09:33 PM
Well Farage sounds and looks like a fruitcake and did himself no favours in his vein popping, head bobbing, chavvy, look-theres-nobody-here-to-stop-me psudo QT waffle.
Hannan on the other hand... devastating, just devastating. When McBust grinned like a loon at Farage, I could understand his mirth/facial spasim. But when he did the same during Dan's speech he looked like a mental creep.
God I bet Hague and Dave are green with envy at this once in a lifetime opportunity to verbally ass rape this pathetic excuse for a PM, with no jeering f**kwits opposite and no gorbals mick to interrupt. priceless.

One of the best, most hearfelt and to the point speeches I've heard for a long time! Fantastic! Bravo Mr Hannan!

Fantastic! Concise and devastatingly clear! It was also good to hear at least some other people agreeing with him!

Dan got all the themes in, and in exemplary English. This speech contains everything we need to win the next election. DC's standing within my Party now depends on the use he makes of this emerging talent. My bet is that faint praise followed by exclusion is the most likely course of action.

Can someone tell me *why* Sky/BBC aren't running it? (I'm being serious, I presume they have reasons...)
March 24, 2009 at 10:51 PM
Although obviously wonderful it isn't really fair to compare with Cameron because unlike Westminster MEP's don't shout and howl throughout which makes a huge difference. I think DC does well in a much more difficult environment
March 24, 2009 at 11:00 PM
yeah, agree with you jenny. cameron doesnt get 3 minutes to deconstruct brown anywhere, let alone in parliament, so it isn't really fair to compare. we also don't know much about hannan as a politician. still, he certainly looks wasted in europe.

March 24, 2009 at 11:34 PM
This speech is rightly getting plastered all over the internet and I've already had a couple of emails with links to it. It goes to show how desperate people are to hear a bit of opposition to Brown. If Daniel Hannan made a couple of speeches like that in the UK mainstream media the Tories might actually begin to look like a credible opposition. As things stand we'll probably hear a bit more whittering from EU Dave and things will sink back to their normal moribund drabness.
Well done to Daniel Hannan, an uplifting moment in an ocean of Tory mediocrity.
March 25, 2009 at 12:10 AM
Bloody hell. Future Prime Minister anyone?
David Galea |
March 25, 2009 at 07:24 AM
And where is the reporting of this stunning speech in any of the MSM?
Can you imagine if a Labour MEP had bitch-slapped Cameron in this way, there would be total silence. No, I thought not.
March 25, 2009 at 07:30 AM
March 25, 2009 at 08:59 AM
This was the end of McBrooon. Good to see it happen at last. Would be useful if DC could quote this speech today.

What an excellent opportuntury that Dan seems to have grasped with both hands and kicked out of the stadium! He shoots, he well and truly scores! Excellent!!
I think he said what every person in this country wishes Cam and Hague would gather up the balls between them to say to this grinning idiot that is selling us down the swanny...afterall what does he care?? Gordoom knows he won't be in power for much longer but that the more damage he does the harder it will be for the Tories to mop up when they do eventually get in.
Well done Dan...and yes please... head to Westminster ASAP to show our lot how it *should* be done!

Brilliant and succinct. Obviously the Brown Broadcasting Corporation won't play this, but I'm surprised it hasn't been picked up by Sky. Perhaps it's a copyright issue?

Opposition - at last.

Congratulations to Dan - he spoke for the majority of British. Superb.

Yes yes yes yes yes!!!!
March 25, 2009 at 10:55 AM
Pass this on to everyone you know! If it becomes known as a 'viral' video the BBC will end up showing it as a news story in its own right!
March 25, 2009 at 11:25 AM
Outstanding, simply outstanding.
March 25, 2009 at 12:26 PM
Concise and to the point. Brilliant! Just brilliant!
Back on the BBC, who did 5 Live have on this morning discussing the Governor of the BoE's 'no more spending Gordon' plea?
That's right, Alastair Campbell. Makes my blood boil. No wonder Brown still has 30% support. They never get to hear what the Conservative Party says.
If we don't take the BBC out at the knees when the opportunity presents itself, we'll only have ourselves to blame.

Daniel Hannan is a class debater. We need more people of this calibre in westminster. Well Done Sir....
March 25, 2009 at 03:05 PM
WOW!! This guy is great!
March 25, 2009 at 04:08 PM
Daniel Hannan`s speech was first class. So was the one made by Nigel Farage, but some Tories would not like to mention it.
Both had the PM smirking, but not surprisingly,neither was shown on the TV news
Edward Huxley |
March 25, 2009 at 04:39 PM
Fantastic! I sat open mouthed.Brown thought he could run away from the home truths but NO! Beautifully executed Mr Hannan
March 25, 2009 at 04:39 PM
I won’t be surprised if this speech is getting posted all over the internet, I’ve passed on the link to various colleagues and the response has been uplifting. It does indeed show how desperate people are to hear genuine opposition to our “Great Leader”. Brown should hang his head in shame because his facial expression spoke volumes as to why he no longer has respect outside his own Government and blinkered supporters. I just wish Daniel Hannan and people like him made speeches like that in the UK mainstream media – if they did the country would wake up and listen.

5* speech, very impressed, It also helps how Dan has excellent pronunciation, grammar, style, and tone, bring back elocution to our schools. We need to rebuild that art of verbal communication in this country.
March 25, 2009 at 05:45 PM
I've just watched it again. Truly superb!
The only thing he could have added was,
"...and I don't know what you've got to be smiling about Mr Brown, you inherited the best legacy of any Chancellor in the last 100 years but on your watch our economy has suffered its biggest Bust of all time;
Sir, I can think of over 2 million people, soon likely to be 3 million who certainly aren't smiling - all because of your hubristic arrogance and incompetence."

I'm glad you have the speech up, but given that it is the most popular video on Youtube today, it does seem a little buried. I hope no one is embarrassed by it?

March 25, 2009 at 09:44 PM
Very good speech indeed. Cameron and others have also made excellent speeches. It was interesting though that at the EU, the speech was not interrupted like in Westminster.
March 25, 2009 at 11:02 PM
The two should have changed places and given the British people some hope for the future.......
March 26, 2009 at 01:02 AM
Fantastic - This speech should be printed in every newspaper in the UK.
