Dissent on Sabine Herold

Andrew Ian Castel-Dodge argues that Sabine is a fraud because she is pro-European Union:

Sabine is pro-European Union, so she is not a classical liberal. That is akin to a libertarian who admired the USSR. It does not work. If you have read any of the treaties or even the history of the founding of the EU, you will realise that the EU was never meant to be anything close to "classical liberal". It is to be an undemocratic, monolithic statist socialist super-state.

Well, I guess nobody is perfect, but possibly having some misconceptions about the EU doesn't automatically turn her into a fraud, especially in such a hostile environment to classical liberal ideas as contemporary France.
