Swedish MEP Lars Wohlin, first founding member of the anti-EU “June List”, then “Christian Democrat”, now “Conservative” (?) in an advertising campaign in the leading Swedish newspapers, today (22/11), urges us not to ratify the Lisbon Treaty. Sorry Lars, a waste of money, it’s already done.
Lars’ speciality is the difference between the short and long-term interest rates which, as we all know, is the source of all sorts of evil. Also he is of the opinion that the EU should not bother about various things. In most of his speeches in the Parliament he is trying to explain why he doesn’t want to vote. Unfortunately it is not very likely that the next EP will provide a platform for this profund wisdom since no party is likely to include Lars on their list. A pity, really, since it might mean his return to domestic politics.
