Odd position for a Eurosceptic

Nigel Evans MP

Further to the previous blog entry about the calls for a general election, I find this further example, from the House of Commons on 16 June:

Mr. Nigel Evans (Ribble Valley) (Con): Following the crushing defeats experienced by the Government on 7 June, when the results of the European elections placed Labour even below the United Kingdom Independence party, what moral authority do they consider that they have to discuss any issue on behalf of the people of this country?

The answer of course is that the government won the general election in 2005. Is Nigel Evans really suggesting that European elections should take over from general elections in deciding who should be in the government of this country? That really would be an odd position to take, even for a Eurosceptic.
