Riding The Eu Gravy Train: Meps In Brussels Earn Up To 740% More Than Average Citizen And Enjoy Free Haircuts And Gallons Of Petrol

Recommended Posts

Basic fact check- MEP salary is E95k gross, and E74.5k before national taxes (which may, or may not, be applied)

The Heil's figures would require that they start on at least E200k, so they're only out by over 100%. Is there any point in even entertaining the rest of their fiction? About the quality of journalism you expect from the frothy-mouthed phobes.

I think the point is that the various allowances, expenses etc add up to a total cost of more than double an MP. It's entirely plausible, and I'm sure you agree because your sig mentions Mr Farage's expense bill.

You're clearly anti-UKIP from your sig. Are you pro-EU?

Good spotting.

So by his figures Farage has had £2m+ expenses over 14 years as an MEP, which is £142k or E165k per year. Add that to his figure or a basic MEP wage of E95k per year and you get E260k a year. Not taking into account expenses are probably tax free.

And then he says it is impossible for any MEPs to be on E200k and anyone who says otherwise is a frothing phobe.
