Double Standards

When European Auditors criticise misspending of EU money contrary to EU rules by anyone other than UKIP ...

Nigel Farage said

"The court of auditors have failed to give the all clear to EU accounts for 19 years in a row.

"This EU fraud is because the EU is institutionally flawed.

"In golfing terms, while the British and European taxpayers are working to keep their families afloat, Barroso and the Commission are sitting happy at the 19th Hole (golf club bar) having an easy life.

"It is about time the peoples of Europe were able to get this EU albatross off their backs, or at least out of their pockets.

"This week, it has been revealed that the EU has just wasted thousands of pounds on studies into toilet behaviour and use of vacuum cleaners – this is a huge waste, but according to the auditors is not counted as fraud. This is an example of a ridiculous waste of money."

Double Standards, anyone?
