Crooks, bastards and lying thiefs
Why aren't we shocked by a corrupt EU?
By Daniel Hannan
The shocking thing is that we're no longer shocked. Yesterday, for the thirteenth consecutive year, the European Court of Auditors refused to approve the EU budget.
If this happened to a government department, it would be front page news. If it happened to a private corporation, directors would be facing prison terms. But, because it's Brussels, we flex our shoulders in a shrug so disdainful as to be almost Gallic. Yup, the EU is corrupt. Et alors?
The shocking thing is that the leftists often is the hardliners in the chritizism of the union, while it is a socialistic wet dream. Super centralistic. Super beurochratic and super protectionistic! Likewise shocking is that so many "conservative" partys are so positive to it...
The political world really is turned upside down and inside out sometimes!
(And soon the EU is going to be run by the French! "Shudder!")
