How the other half live

You would think that in these times of austerity, continuously pointed out to us by our political leaders, that those same political leaders would actually follow what they preach.
But apparently it does not apply to them!!

At the recent EU summit to decide the European Unions budget for the next few year, the gathered politicians sat down for lunch, (which I expect was not a quick sandwich from the cafe!) and helped themselves to free bottles wine costing £120 each!

I really believe that we need to be a part of the EU, but when you read of the lavish spending of our money on themselves, you have to question if it is all worth it.  The EU budget currently stands at 56 million Euros, and the EU leaders are intent on increasing that to 63 million Euros, no doubt to keep funding the staggering 40,000 bureaucrats that make the whole thing run.

It is high time that this particular gravy train was derailed and the money poured into the EU put to better use than helping the politicians to get sloshed.
