So the House of Commons has finally agreed with the majority of the British public, we don’t want to pay the EU billions of pounds for them to tell us what to do. At last, there is recognition that the austerity imposed in this country should also be imposed on the bureaucrats of the European Union.
Let’s put this in perspective, the European Union Council has not had an audit of their funds signed off (agreed) by auditors for at least SEVENTEEN YEARS! How can this organisation ask for yet more money, when it cannot balance its books properly?
The 2010 accounts showed that £3.9 billion was spent against the rules, including procurement; remember this is the organisation that wants to control all the budgets in the euro currency area – but it can’t balance its own books!
Why should people have to suffer more and more cuts in public services to fund an over large, mis-spending organisation which expects more and more monies to be placed in its ever open hand. We need to fund our own poor and not the massive juggernaut of the EU that is rumbling towards its own destruction.
We cannot afford to be a member of an organisation that gives us no benefit at all, but empties our purse into its leaky coffers.
