Calling England notes that the Government - Eric Pickles - has only just discovered the Manche region of the European Union. Just where the hell has Pickles been since he was first elected MP for Brentwood back in 1992? Exactly how does he plan to "fight these plans, stop this waste and protect England’s national and local identities from EU empire-building"?
