Suggested Christmas reading

If you still are not sure what Christmas book you would like to buy to a friend, your wife/husband or yourself, here is my recommendation: Buy Daniel Hannan´s new book  The New Road to Serfdom: A Letter of Warning to America. It is excellent reading not only for Americans, but also for Europeans - even so called europhiles.

There is much too little critical thinking about the European Union. Most politicians do not dare to challenge the "official consensus". Among the several thousand Brussels correspondents, only a handful qualify as real investigative journalists. The overwhelming majority are happy to act as parrots for politicians and bureaucrats, in the name of political correctness.

That is why it is so good to have politicians like Daniel Hannan (MEP), whose deep knowledge of the American political system makes him an ideal person to compare the present day EU and the US.

Watch and listen here to Hannan introducing his new book in Washington DC in order to get a taste of Hannan´s message.
