Douglas Carswell MP has noted the growing demands of the House of Commons in holding the executive to account. Supine arselickers are no longer sauce of the day on the green benches. Yet the government still remains contemptuous of such demands.
Cameron's Euroscepticism is a tour de farce in execution: dragged licking and screaming into the ligh as the latest victim of Brussels syndrome. His persobal penchant for compromise with the EU is highlighted by his latest ambassador to the Union: Ivan Rogers who has worked for the Europhiles, Leon Brittan and Ken Clark. That will raise eyebrows in the drier elements of the Tory party.
Such a combination of parliemantary scrutiny and EU scepticism marry in Bill Cash, chairman of the House of Commons European Scrutiny Commitee. The Committee's wish to speak to Ivan Rogers was rebuffed by William Hague, Foreign Secretary, on the grounds that the appointee was a diplomat. With such powers, the Committee is more than a little disgruntled with such executive highhandedness.
This is just not good enough....and further evidence that Cameron is not to be trusted on Europe.
