The First Post : Eurocrats get a taste of euro-feeling

The First Post : Eurocrats get a taste of euro-feeling

Have a look at this article and if you agree that the European gravy train needs derailing, sign the online petition.

The obscene amount of money that is wasted in bureaucracy in Europe would be much better spent elsewhere, like building new prisons, for example.

Of course we all know that nothing will change, because the people with the power to change are the ones that are benefitting from the system. They are not about to vote away all those expenses, are they? (Not unless they’ve got a few ex-Federation members on board – whatever happened to all our expenses?)

Just a thought – why is there no petition to scrap the whole sorry mess altogether? The only country that abides by the legislation is Britain. You don’t see warning signs and cones all over Spain or France, the Greeks wouldn’t know a health and safety officer if one fell off a ladder and hit them on the head and for the rest of Europe, human rights are for the normal average citizen, not for the criminal element.

Sorry about the lack of posts this week – I’ve had other things to attend to. None of them are remotely exciting enough to put on here, so you’ll just have to take my word that they were more important.

    if we’re going to start petitions to derail wasteful bureaucracy why not start closer to home – the NHS comes to mind…

    I agree with Ed W. And, as someone who has grown up seeing European integration and co-operation, I must say I much prefer the common European citizenship, freedom of movement, single market, cross-border cooperation (SIRENE/Schengen is part of this, remember).

    Mark – all wonderful things, but why are they so bloody expensive? The vast majority of MEPs do not have any mandate from this country to impose rules and taxes upon us. In actual fact, the majority of British voters don’t even bother with Euro elections.
