EU MEP’s caught red-handedangelo | June 29, 2008
For the first time in a while I’m really, really angry again over something I saw.
What you see in the next video, is members of the European parliament, coming into the office in the morning to sign in to work, and then leave immediately. This way, they can get up to 14.000 EUR per month, by doing nothing..
They are clearly committing fraud, stealing MY money, and all the other tax payers’. And what makes me even more angry, is the way these people respond. They do not take responsibility like politicians should, they act like 3 year-olds caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
Irish MEP Kathy Sinnott threatens the reporter, and German MEP Hiltrud Breyer almost hits her head in a wall, because she wants to put her head in the sand so badly. Look at her, she’s a total disgrace to the EU. These people are our politicians! Where’s the pride, where’s the backbone?
And of course, even though the reporter, Herr Meier, apparently has the right to film in the hall, he’s thrown out nonetheless..
I really hope the MEP’s in this footage will be fired, arrested and charged with fraud, but of course they won’t. Most likely they’ll just get another warning, and nothing happens.
Here’s the video.
