It is not anti-European to be pro-democracy, says Bill Cash

As reported in the Daily Telegraph on 10 November 2010, Bill Cash has responded to the attack on Euroscepticism by the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy:
 
"Bill Cash, the Conservative chairman of the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee, "entirely repudiated" a link between Euroscepticism and the rise of nationalism.
 
"It is not anti-European to be pro-democracy. The problem is that the democratic base for the EU is wanting. The solution to the rise of the far-Right is proper democracy exercised through national parliaments," he said."
