Read This As Polls Open – Report Slams Sly MEP Swine!


A third of MEPs even declined to reveal addresses of their offices, gave addresses that could not be found on the map or simply refused to answer.

That’s pretty bad.

What have they got to hide?

…investigations (brought together under The MEPs Project) had shown that many of these offices just did not exist….

.

The question above, and the stunning conclusion, come from a report on a case lost by a group of journalists  and you should note well that these are NOT ‘populist’ or ‘nationalist’ journos.

Not at all.

I’m looking at a page from the fanatically Europhiliac EUObserver.

As they say themselves –

We, the journalists from The MEPs Project who have co-signed this opinion piece do not share a political platform.

We have very different opinions on the future of the EU.

However, as reporters covering European affairs, we have one common objective: to hold elected officials accountable for their decisions as well as their use of taxpayers´ money.

I’m not going to quote the entire report, but it’s worth noting that their indictment of ‘Europe’ is not ONLY of the Strasbourg Slug MEPs..

….but also of the arrogant elitists on the ECJ – the very body to whose arbitrary rulings…

evil judge

…Theresa the Traitrix would have her sleazy deal, backstop and all, be subject.

eurocourt

the European Court of Justice…decided that the MEPs’ right to privacy trumped our right of access to documents

Euro-Jerk Judges laughing at the tax-payers?

…..

We thought the European Court of Justice would recognise the democratic public interest in this request.

We thought the European parliament would share our concern and seize the chance to strengthen the legitimacy of the parliament.

We were wrong on both assumptions.

Given that reality, why would ANYONE in the UK want Britain to stay in a sty occupied by dirty, disreputable, greedy swine?

……

In 2019, all members receive €4,513 each month for keeping offices in their home countries while not on duty in Brussels and Strasbourg.

This allowance comes on top of their salaries (€8,757.70/month), and in addition to reimbursements for travel costs (business airfare/first-class rail fare).

They also receive allowances for living costs (€320/day). The office allowances represents more than €40m a year.

Out of 748 MEPs at the time of our investigation in 2017, only 53 were prepared to show documentation for actual spending.https://euobserver.com/opinion/144827

As the journos remark…

So much for transparency of public spending.

We did not ask what tax the parliamentarians pay or how they otherwise use their salary.

We were not looking for information about their private lives.

Rather we asked for documents that the European parliament is supposed to have in order to verify that this public money is spent in accordance with the rules.

This argument was not enough to break the privacy barrier, we were told by the court.

Their final segment is headed, accurately, with the words, ‘Lost battle...’

Thus, we lost the legal battle. Then there was the political reaction.

On 31 January 2019 a majority of the Members of the European Parliament voted in favour of a change of the rules that govern their expenditures.

It will in the future be made technically possible for individual MEPs to publish a voluntary audit of their use of the General Expenditure Allowance (GEA), the office money, on their official websites.

That is to say:

No demand for auditing.

No obligations to document costs.

No accountability of how the allowances are used.

There’s a lot more, but anyone naive enough to contemplate a vote for Remain stooge shouldn’t need ANY more!

f the European parliament rejecting responsibility and accountability.

This is all the more surprising as now the EU commissioners and the top officials of the EU agencies publish details about their travel expenses.
