Dan Hannan on the sovereignty of national parliaments

South East MEP Daniel Hannan has made another speech, on the sovereignty of national parliaments.

Mr Hannan ends almost every speech with the words: "Pactio Olisipiensis Censenda Est" - "The Lisbon Treaty must be Put to the Vote". He tells me this is in homage to Cato the Elder who would end his speeches with the words “Carthage Must Be Destroyed”. Mr Hannan adds:

"Senators used to mock him, imitate his voice, shout him down. But you know what? In the end, they sacked Carthage!"
