In the Green Room: MEP Daniel Hannan

Member of the European Parliament Daniel Hannan came to Heritage today [1] to remind Americans why and how to avoid Europe’s mistakes.

On March 24, 2009, Daniel Hannan became an overnight internet sensation when a YouTube recording of his three-minute speech [2] responding to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s remarks before the European Parliament went viral. As the most viewed video for two days running and with over  2.4 million views to date, Dan Hannan’s speech opposing higher public spending, tax increases and record borrowing in the current economic crisis sparked international debate.

His video is a must-see. No less compelling are his words for the Foundry on the concept of stimulus spending and the status of the Anglo-American “Special Relationship.”
