Gavin Esler, the supposedly impartial BBC presenter, has just been sharing his opinions with us yet again on Dateline London.
On those absurd EU appointments, he told us (in keeping with what seems to be the Beeb's new standard line on the issue) "One way of looking at it is that Sarkozy and Merkel, and maybe Brown and Berlusconi and the others, want it to be - what did the French used to call it? - a 'union des patries', a union of sovereign states, which is what it is . So it's shot the idea that there's some federal superstate in the offing".
Having taken sides against the Eurosceptics, he returned to the fray later, saying this: "I rarely hear the federalist superstate argument except for people who say they're opposed to it. You never hear anyone saying they want it."
What will, say, UKIP make of such criticisms from a supposedly neutral BBC presenter?
