Portuguese Government makes sardines out of small parties!

The Portuguese were never really very good at democracy. We're now being run in Europe by a Portuguese, José Manuel Durão Barroso, and he gives scant regard to democracy and democratic values. Referendums are to him what Mrs. McCain senior thinks her son will be to the Republican Party faithful.

The rogues in Lisbon have decided that, from March this year, no political party may legally exist unless it has 5000 members or more. Where on earth is a fledgling political party going to get such numbers from in order to start?

The new law stinks! It is manipulation of the first order. The names and addresses of the members must be given to the Portuguese authorities. Big Brother wants you for his own! Of the fourteen political parties that exist in Portugal today, only four will be allowed to exist after March 2008. This great wrong has been exposed by Nigel Farage, MEP, leader of UKIP.

Democrats around the world should know what a stiflingly bureaucratic nightmare these weasels that run the EU have created.
