#489* – THE CURRANT BUN HAVING FUN!!
Clean EUkip up NOW & make UKIP electable!
The corruption of some of EUkip’s leadership
& NEC is what gives the remaining 10%
a bad name!
THE CURRANT BUN HAVING FUN & ITS ONLY JUST BEGUN!!!
First of ALL Thank you to The Sun for their efforts to expose the utter corruption of The EU and the sordid betrayal of our peoples by EVERY SINGLE MEP bar none.
By GEORGE PASCOE-WATSON
GREEDY Euro MPs rake in up to £363,250 A YEAR in expenses — without producing a single receipt, a Sun investigation can reveal.
The taxpayers’ cash they pocket dwarfs the amounts claimed by Westminster MPs, whose milking of the system sparked outrage.
During the five-year term of a Brussels parliament, an MEP can clock-up an eye-watering £1,816,250 in expenses. They even get free mudbaths.
On top of that the Euro fatcats will soon be on a basic salary of £83,282, after awarding themselves a pay rise of 47 PER CENT. They pay income tax of just 15 PER CENT on it.
British workers on that money pay 40 per cent top rate tax, which is rising to 50 per cent.
But the gravy train does not stop there. When they leave, MEPs are awarded £41,573 in “transition payments” and pension rights of £30,000 a year.
And in addition to the bucket-loads of cash, Brussels lawmakers enjoy a huge array of free perks — including 60 MUDBATHS a year.
Gordon Brown … new rules
Hard-pressed British taxpayers are pouring £7BILLION a year into the EU.
With nine days to go before Britons vote for our 72 members in the European Parliamentary Election, The Sun urges political leaders: STOP Euro MPs lining their pockets at our expense.
The £363,250 MEPs can claim a year breaks down like this: £36,778 in “subsistence allowances”.
That is £259 a day for 142 days of the year — effectively just for turning up.
They also get £5,885 in language and IT courses. £87,407 in travel expenses. £3,756 for an “additional annual travel allowance.” £183,776 staff allowances and £45,648 for office expenses (at £3,804 a month).
They can also claim the cost of bandages for varicose veins, contact lenses and batteries for hearing aids.
MEPs can have five relaxing sessions of mudbaths, hydromassage, hydrotherapy and acupuncture every month with a doctor’s note.
They all travel business class on aircraft. And dental repairs worth £150 per gold crown are available.
Receipts are NOT required to prove claims for MEPs’ office costs, staff, travel or other expenses.
Being able to claim a flat rate for all expenses, rather than having to submit receipts, allows them to pocket the cash without buying anything — or buying cheap and pocketing the difference.
Mudbaths for ‘millionaires’ … MEPs’ extraordinary expenses
Voters are kept entirely in the dark about the Brussels freebies and hospitality.
And there are no penalties for leaving anything off the register of interests.
Taxpayers are also forced to fund the extraordinary £180million-a-year cost of the European Parliament sitting in Brussels AND Strasbourg.
Its 1,745 workers and their offices, including their paperwork, are shipped between Belgium and France every month — at our expense.
This trek has become known as the “travelling circus”.
And the European Parliament has done all it can to hush up the shocking gravy train.
A report written in 2006 by the EU’s Internal Audit official Robert Galvin has only been seen by a handful of MEPs and was kept secret until last year.
It showed MEPs were paying companies for office and staff support — which turned out to be a children’s day-care centre and a company which traded wood. Bonuses were regularly paid to staff of up to 19 TIMES salary.
Bogus companies were listed for payments from MEPs in return for office services.
A staggering eight out of ten transactions by MEPs which were subject to VAT included NO evidence the tax was ever paid.
And some paid office and staff allowances straight into the coffers of their own political party.
Details of MEPs’ claims were given to The Sun by the independent think tank Open Europe.
Mark Wallace, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “Many MEPs are raking it in and living the high life in Brussels.”
Surveys suggest the Tories will top the poll for Britain’s MEPs on June 4 — with Labour braced to come fourth behind UKIP.
Tory leader David Cameron last week forced Tory candidates for Brussels to sign pledges to post all their claims on a website.
They must also say if they employ family members and how much they are paid.
Gordon Brown followed suit last night, forcing Labour MEPs to publish all receipts for claims for the office costs allowance.
They will also publish details of all travel costs and the number of times they claim the daily attendance allowance.
While the Tories must publish full details of their claims on the internet, they will NOT have to submit their receipts.
Labour’s leader in the European Parliament, Glenis Willmott, said: “Labour MEPs have led the way for nine years, voluntarily having their accounts audited by an independent accountant and published online.
“We have all now taken the decision to voluntarily publish a breakdown of expenditure and all receipts pertaining it.”

I am given to understand that The Currant Bun will be playing ‘The long Game’ and I have spent several hours in discussion with them.
There is another story by Brian Flynn on page 9 also, which will be on the web site later today.
The net is closing in and the article on EUkip that was expected in The NotW last Sunday has been re-scheduled for this coming Sunday, having been bumped by the security breeches at Buck House Mews.
NO POLITICIANS CAN BE TRUSTED TO DESTROY THEIR GRAVY TRAIN
Turkeys don’t vote for Christmas!
NO POLITICIAN will make any serious effort to liberate us from The EU, they are paid too much of our money as bribes to keep thwe scam going.
SHINE THE TRUTH of exposure on The EU and it will collapse – beaten to death for its lies, corruption and theft by the venal self seeking and totally irrelevant politicians.
Just think – in desparation to keep their snouts in the troughs The Faragista Fan Club has promised to publish their accounts – what a surprise!
In Five years with 12 MEPs EUkip has achieved absolutely nothing to move us one inch closer to Exit – 2 Dozen EUkip MEPs for 10 years doing twice as much each would remain all but invisible – IT IS A SCAM
Many of us will remember
Farage PROMISED to publish his accounts
10 years ago – HE LIED.
Why should no one be surprised!
Farage has no integrity and is a moral dyslexic.
Try to understand what is really going on:
The series consists of three, one-hour programmes which explore the concept and definition of freedom, specifically “how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today’s idea of freedom.”

TO LEAVE THE EU
What is the exit and survival plan for these United Kingdoms to maximise on the many benefits of leaving The EU. It is the DUTY of our Politicians and Snivil Cervants to ensure the continuity, liberty and right to self determination of our peoples they have a DUTY to protect against crime and secure both our food and our border.
NONE of these DUTIES has a single British politician upheld for 40 years. They have drawn their incomes fraudulently and dishonesty.
Politicians are failing to tell the truth, but so are almost all wanabe Politicians, the MSM and Snivil Cervants.
The fact is that even if EVERY British MEP wanted change in The EU it would achieve NOTHING.
Every single British Politician, of EVERY Party, elected since before we joined the EUropean Common Market, has promised to change The EU’s CAP – In 40 Years they have achieved absolutely NOTHING!
To try to put a value on OUR Freedom is as futile as floccipaucinihilipilification and as odious as the metissage of our societies, as we rummage in the ashes of our ancestors dreams, sacrifices and achievements, the flotsam of our hopes and the jetsam of our lives, consider the Country and Anglosphere which we leave our children and the future, with shame!

PLEASE POST THIS TAG AS FOLLOWS:ON YOUR eMAILS & BLOGS, FORUM POSTINGS & MAILINGS – GET THE MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE IT IS OUR BEST HOPE AS WHOEVER IS APPOINTED WILL MAKE NO DIFFERENCE AS PROVED!
I SUGGEST – since there is clearly no political party of repute, advocating or campaigning for withdrawal of these United Kingdoms from the EU and restoration of our independent sovereign, democracy, with Justice & the right to self determination in a free country. Deny the self seeking & meaningless wanabe MEPs the Mythical Mandate for which they clamour. Diktat is imposed from The EU but Law should be made at Westminster, for our Country & our Peoples.
