Delusions of Adequacy

"Tory Euro-MP Philip Bradbourn said he was fundamentally committed to changing the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy.
as reported in the Malvern Gazette.

Bless him: does he actually think that anyone out there really gives a fuck what he thinks, let alone how a nobody MEP only vaguely known by some journalists because of his habit of going on holiday at the expense of the tax payer...sorry 'study days'let alone that he can sort out a policy the majority of EU leaders are perfectly happy with and which requires unanimity?

Unless he's planning to change it by spearheading the movement to leave?

Nothing like a bit of optimism when faced with a French EU President.

Well, you can still be 'committed' to changing a policy while at the same time knowing that you have a zero chance of success.

Anyway hopeless causes can be romantic and valiant, and I guess he's probably sincere (?), so good luck to him. But if he knows that he deceives people into unrealisable expectations of success, this is indeed irresponsible.

Yeah, maybe he just wants out but men (or is it women) upstairs with wriggly implements of discipline intimidate him. I've no idea.
