Self explanatory title. I abhor that nicey nicey, politically correct, pseudo-Christianity which almost always supports leftwing attitudes - which in most cases are profoundly anti-Gospel. This Blog supports persecuted Christians. This Blog exposes cults. This Blog opposes junk science. UPDATED DAILY. This is not a forum. It is hardhitting and unashamedly evangelical so if it offends - please do not come to this site!

EU Travel Expenses.
EU air miles an outrage
Published Aug 09, 2017
In 2 months last year European Commissioners, the unelected elite that
drive forward the EU's political agenda, spent between them over EUR 500,000.
Spanish transparency organisation Access-!nfo has fought for the release of
details of EU expenses against classic bureaucratic stonewalling and but they
have succeeded in getting some limited release.
Nigel Farage, the leader of the UKIP group in the European Parliament
said on the revelation that Commission President Juncker had spent EUR 27,000
alone in those two months,
"Outrageous! Juncker spending 27 thousand euro on a private jet at
taxpayers' expense is clearly over the top especially when many normal flights
are available. I suppose these junket expenses are all part of the make-believe
'Brexit bill' which these Commissioners have plucked out of thin air and trying
to extort from our government."
Jonathan Arnott MEP also commented, "Of
course EU Commissioners need to travel; many of us wish they'd travel somewhere
far away - and stay there. But how many of these missions are truly needed in
the first place? Chartering planes and authorising what presumably adds up to
millions of euros of our taxes a year in travel is another indication of how the
Commission is acting like a government, not a 'civil service' as apologist
Remainers like to claim."
"It is imperative that the EU now comes fully clean on its travel
expenses, the excuse that it costs too much to check just isn't good enough.
This is European taxpayers' money, and the taxpayer has the right to know what
is being done with it"
