Last week, British MEP Daniel Hannan ruled the world. Almost.
It is a pity that it has to be a speech from a British politician speaking to another British politician about basically British politics has to become one of the most viewed and famous speeches in the European Parliament ever (and for two days the most watched video worldwide).
The EP webeditors have discussed the viral effects of this phenomenon, but even Mr Hannan, a well-known blogger himself (which is one basic explanation for this success), seemed to be surprised.
So Mr Hannan has finally won: He managed to nationalise the European Parliament.
