Why That Break With the EU?


The greatest enemy of any organisation such as the EU is corruption and the bigger the organisation, the bigger the problem. The concept of the EU was magnificent – it just got too big, and too many people jumped on what has become a gravy-train for invisible parasites. Immigration was the weapon of those who wanted to stir up hatred and fear – it obviously succeeded if the degree of vitriol towards those who wanted to leave is anything to go by. The EU must reform. Individual countries will not be able to sustain the mounting year-on-year increases as the extravagances of MEPs and EU commissioners demand gigantic budget increases while resisting all attempts to curb expenses OR audit the accounts. It is little reported that the audit has failed to be signed off since before Neil Kinnock became a commissioner – and that was before Blair became PM of UK in 1997. The EU sacked the Swedish accountant because she refused to sign off the accounts as they did not balance – they have NEVER balanced since. Quite frankly, countries do not require platoons of civil servants to accompany MEPs nor the armies of representatives from every country that populate the Emerald Cities that Luxembourg and Brussels have become. Each country could cut its contingents to single figures and get the work done more efficiently.
