Well, if you were running a public company spending hundreds of billions of Euro's and for thirteen years, your auditors were refusing to sign off on your accounts stating that your accounts were not fit for purpose, full of fraud and corruption, you would be chucked into jail, no? You would not swan around in expensive suits, be photographed in the media shaking hands with the great and good, no?
No, well, here's the European Commission which is full of crooks. Nobody is responsible and this is the organisation that Gordon Brown wants us to sign up to without a referendum?
Crooks and Thives! I quote:
A report by the European Court of Auditors (ECA) criticises nearly every major area of the EU's expenditure.
According to the auditors, the commission has failed to maintain effective supervision of expenditure on major infrastructure projects, the BBC's Jonny Dymond in Brussels says.
In all, nearly 80% of the EU's 106bn-a-year euro budget (£75bn) fails the auditors test.
And I dont care that it is because of complex technical requirements. Public companies manage to do this. And if the EC cant manage its own accounts, then how on earth is it managing the EU? the mind boggles at the sheer stupidity of the excuses that these morons put forth.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
