Germany’s Top MEP Swindled His Own Constituents While Cashing in From EU

The European Parliament’s longest-serving member Elmar Brok has been caught with his snout stuck deep in the EU trough. Germany’s most influential MEP was uncovered systematically swindling his own constituents, charging them €150 per head for the costs of visiting him at the European Parliament while at the same time claiming costs back from the EU. Yesterday he announced he will not be standing for election again…

Brok, who was was until last year President of the Union of European Federalists, earns €8,757.70 a month as an MEP, and has raked in thousands more from work on the side. Clearly that wasn’t enough for the greedy greedy Eurofederalist, who netted nearly €18,000 from his scam in just two years. Where will MEPs keep grabbing their grubby money from if we don’t hand over our £39bn..?

UPDATE: A co-conspirator has pointed out that back in 2011, Brok was chased by the Public Prosecutor of Bielefeld for tax evasion, but escaped due to MEPs immunity from legal proceedings. Rotten to the core…

Quote of the Day

Soros on the pan-European elections to the EU parliament…

“It is difficult to see how the pro-European parties can emerge victorious from the election in May unless they put Europe’s interests ahead of their own. One can still make a case for preserving the EU in order radically to reinvent it. But that would require a change of heart in the EU. The current leadership is reminiscent of the politburo when the Soviet Union collapsed – continuing to issue ukazes as if they were still relevant.”
