Hannan video viral

with 2 comments


It’s so good it’s worth seeing again

Conservative MEP Dan Hannan has become an internet sensation after the mainstream media ignored his speech attacking Gordon Brown in the EU Parliament, his YouTube video of the event is the most watched video currently available on YouTube and it has now been seen more than 684000 times, and it’s on course to be the most viewed political speech in the fastest time in internet history. He also been interviewed by Fox News in the USA, they seem to think that a star has been born! Hannan also revealed himself to be a big Ron Paul fan – way to go boy!

Labour MP Tom Harris seems to think that Dan Hannan’s attack was an outright disgrace

Gordon Brown isn’t just Labour’s prime minister; he’s Britain’s prime minister, and for any UK politician to launch such a disgraceful, personal attack on his country’s leader — in a foreign country — is nothing short of disgraceful.

Hmm, now, was he elected as Labour’s leader? Nope.

Has been elected as Britain’s Prime Minister? Nope.

Has he faced the British electorate with his ideas on European integration? Nope.

With the EU formulating 80% of our laws now, is Europe a foreign place when Gordon Brown declares we are right in the heart of it? Nope.

Seems to me that 3 minutes of criticism from a man simply articulating what  the majority of us would wish our Westminster MPs to say, (in a Parliament to which he was elected to represent his constituents), is rather more than you can handle Tom. Better get used to it, there’ll be plenty more between now and the general election.

  1. Mainstream media ignored this slam of socialism, but Jay Leno slams Obama in this video with the c-word (communism):

  2. First time I had ever heard for Dan Hannan – what an awesome speaker! The reason this has gone viral is the fact that he is saying what a vast majority or the uk population are thinking! This chap needs to be voted into the Commons – we need him!
