Boris in Brussels

Brussels is a shining symbol of where the real power lies - Telegraph
As Westminster MPs lick their wounds, their European counterparts grow ever more confident, says Boris Johnson.

Indeed, with more directives in the pipeline, the future of the whole UK financial services industry is probably in their hands. That is why it is so telling to see the physical contrast between desiccated Westminster and sleek, self-confident Brussels. Power has passed, is passing, and under the Treaty of Lisbon, will pass further to the Euro-parliament.
Except the power is and will lie with the Commission and the Councils, rather than the MEPS.
