Eu Troughers Will Get A New £213M Home Paid For By Us

Recommended Posts

Prime Minister David Cameron attacked European Union leaders on Friday for trumpeting a 240 million euro (213 million pound) investment in a new Brussels home when it is preaching austerity to member states.

European Council President Herman Van Rompuy gave heads of government an expensively produced brochure illustrating the refurbishment at a dinner on Thursday night overshadowed by efforts to resolve the debt crisis in Greece.

The EU may now have a better than 50:50 chnace of break-up within the next year or so. Revolution is being formented and this may become some sort of Bastille that willl be stormed by a lot of angry citizens.

Better role out "Euro X Factor" then or revive jeux sans frontiers

The whole of our political classes soon have to be held to account for the mess they have created alongside the bankers. Both have fed from the trough for so long they have lost all sense of reality!

No great surprise, is it. These people forget whom they serve.

Until I read David Craig's book 'Squandered' I didn't realise that once a month the whole European Parliament ups sticks and moves to Strasbourg for four days - for no discernible reason other than it's a nice change of scene (few days in some nice hotels who ramp up their prices) and puts money into the French economy.

The whole exercise costs 200 million euros a year.

Madness.

Isn't it because they couldn't agree which country should host the EU? That should have been a warning right there...

As a trading body, I support the EU, but the attempts to expand its remit and authority are looking increasingly misguided to put it mildly.

Something of a bargain compared to the Scottish Parliament·

British Nationalists all over - a deliberate and calculated attempt to smear the growing demands for self determination in the provences.

As was the Edinburgh Trams fiasco...

Both opposed strongly by the SNP who thought the current location for the parliament was good enough and that no sane person would pay 1 billion quid for a tram ride when buses already cover the route (apparently liebore and the other British Nationalists thought otherwise and pushed the project through with predictable results)

No wonder we vote for the SNP in droves up here - you lads want someone similar down there before the current bunch of kunts totally wreck your country.

Enough is enough

The Brit Nats really know how to sign a contract that rips off the public.

Says you!

I happen to know that Bo Selecta is an abbreviation of "Bureaucracy Office Selector" and relates to the EU's perogative to switch location exactly as you described!

Have you seen the proposed design for the debating chamber? It looks like the lair of James Bond's gayest arch villain ever.

But oooooh, it's 'sustainable' despite vast spaces to heat, irregular shape etc. How many of these modern buildings will be admired in 100 years? They all seem to look like either Easter eggs left to melt in the sun, or a semi-random Meccano construction that has just been stamped on.
