After some knockabout humour Mr Callanan, leader of Tory MEPs, told the Manchester Party Conference that Eurosceptics deserved a bigger hearing in Brussels after they had been so comprehensively vindicated by predicting the problems of the single currency.
Martin Callanan MEP was speaking to BBC1's Politics Show. He urged the Coalition to take a more "robust" view on "legally dubious" bailouts. He said we weren't helping already indebted countries by imposing high interest loans on them. He said it was "wrong" for taxpayers to bear all of the burden without banks writing off some of their bad lending.
