On Friday 1st May the Telegraph reported the comments of the European Union's enlargement commissioner, Olli Rehn, who accused the British people of having an irrational and backward looking view of the EU's eastwards expansion and foreign workers, then on Monday 4th May we get the news that the EU is pumping billions of pounds of our money on all sorts of absurd and strange projects such as trying to 'define God'. And Olli Rehn is wondering why the British people are so sceptical?
The Taxpayers Alliance, that bastion of common sense which seems to be one of the few organisations standing up for the hard hit and put-upon British taxpapyers, has reported just how much of our money the EU squanders and some of the most useless and pointless projects. It seems we, through the EU money siphoning system, have given £137,000 to fund a carnival which obviously tickled the EU's fancy, an actors union got 103,000 to keep the luvvies happy, there was £1.4 million spent on an 'Explaining Religion' programme and not to forget the £96,000 so that fifteen artists from nine European countries could have a nice little jolly in Liverpool.
This is just some of the ways in which the EU is lavish with our diminishing earnings. If it does find God then maybe we can ask for Heaven to help us against this madness.
