Returning home this evening I intended to draw attention to a piece in the Barclay Brother Beano. However Richard has done it justice already, so rather than spend time recreating the story with slightly less panache, here is how Richard sets the scene on EU Referendum…
Unable to fight his corner even on his own blog, after the assertions he made on Norway were challenged, Mats Persson of Open Europe has scuttled off to his Telegraph clog, repeating his propaganda in the hope of reaching a more gullible audience.
However, while desperate to support the Cameron line that Norway, within the EFTA/EEA matrix has “no say” over the framing of EU rules, Persson has been forced to concede that Norway does indeed have some input on the framing of laws. All he will grudgingly allow, though, is that “Oslo has exceptionally limited ability to influence them”.
There’s more where that came from, once again exposing Persson’s shallow and ill-informed assertions for the misleading rubbish they are.
The comments section under the post in the Beano are a joy to behold as they almost universally rip little Mats’ argument to shreds. Christmas may have come and gone but one Persson is still working as Cameron’s EuroElf. However the goodies coming out of the sack are shoddy imitations and already broken before they have been opened.
