I case you missed the two page spread with pictures in the Daily Telegraph on 10th August –
“Commissioners’ expenses revealed after a three year battle against obstruction by the Brussels
machine. Campaigners made 190 requests for information on expenses, finally they
have released information but only for two months in 2016…they are still refusing
to release full year figures !
Between January and February 2016, European Commissioners spent around
£500,000 on travel expenses, including chartered jets, £500 hotel rooms and “daily
allowances” (no receipts required). The details of the individuals concerned are
very revealing….and this is just the Commissioners !
Another article the following day reminded us all that EU staff and MEPs only pay
12% tax on their generous salaries…and don’t forget their pension arrangements !
