Dave’s No.10 Meet and Greet For Pro-EU MEPs

EU REFORM

The PM hosted a delegation of eight pro-EU Tory MEPs at Downing Street on Monday morning. Brussels colleagues were surprised to see the group led by Vicky Ford, the East of England MEP who has spent the past year flexing her Eurosceptic muscles, calling for a clampdown on migrants and British “jurisdiction over courts, employment law and human rights”. Ford apparently went full Europhile in front of Dave, heaping praise on his renegotiation strategy and claiming she was leading the pro-EU charge for the Tories in Brussels. A fellow MEP whispers:

“She has managed to upset everyone! MEPs who want to leave the EU are angry at her hypocrisy and pro-EU MEPs are furious that Vicky, who is renowned for her temperamental nature, is claiming to lead them!”

Doh!

EU Literally Chucking Taxpayers’ Money Down The Toilet

Sewer_Plant

Get Britain Out have uncovered some rather unsanitary revelations about EU waste in the 2014 audit. In a section titled “Example of projects without added value”, the report mentions a scheme devised in 2006 in which millions were spent building a sewage plant and network for two Greek municipalities. There was one minor snag: unfortunately the genius EU technocrats forgot about the linking of households and businesses to the sewage network. A full 8 years later at the close of 2014 the proper plumbing had still not been put in place. The report states:

“Project delivered but remains unused: A CF project in Greece consisted of the construction of a sewage plant and of a sewerage network for two municipalities. The infrastructure works were completed in 2013. However, the project cannot be used until connections from private households and industry to the sewerage network are also constructed. From the initial announcement of the project (in 2006) the municipality had enough time to design and implement such connections to the sewerage network. However, at the end of 2014, our audit found that such connections were still not in place. The project of the private connections has been procured during 2015.”
While Guido can sympathise that it’s always hard to find a good plumber when you need one, 8 years does seem rather a long time…
