Or any other government minister, Member of Parliament or 'Cabinet' Local Councillor come to that?
As mentioned in the previous post, with the Lisbon Treaty being a self-amending treaty thereby allowing the EU to assume 'competence' in any area it chooses why the hell are we, as taxpayers, funding their salaries, 'Grace & Favour' homes', second homes or expenses? It has been said that HM Queen is but a citizen of the European Union and, therefore, so are our those that consider themselves our 'government'. How about we, the people, cancel all the foregoing and let these 'self-important people' exist on the average wage - which it is believed is circa £26,000?
As Dan Hannan posts:
"While George Osborne was announcing the cuts, MEPs were pushing through an increase that will cost Britain £880 million"
And we are a self-governing nation? FFS!!!*
* As readers may have gathered - I am a tad 'pissed off'!
