Amazing blood-sucking swines in Brussels

Half of Europe is drowning and we get the EU Parliament President Jerzy Buzek to increase their "not unreasonable" expenditure:

The EU budget for 2011 is now projected to total €142.6 billion ($196 billion). Mr. Buzek said a 5.9% increase was not "unreasonable".

I think spending 100bn so the French can still make cheese and wine is a bargain

Re: Amazing blood-sucking bastards in Brussels

My question to the EU:

Why do you consider the EU expenditure of 1% of the Union's national wealth, which is equivalent to about 235 Euro per head "a small amount" of money considering that in 1960, the budget of the then European Economic Community was 0.03% of GDP? Being the fact that you consider it small, is this because you have plans to keep on growing forever? Thanks


The reply:

Dear Mr. XYZ,

We acknowledge receipt of your message and in response to your enquiry regarding the European Union (EU) budget expenditure, we would like to inform youthat this money is used with the aim of improving the everyday lives of people. For students, this could be in the form of opportunities to study abroad. For small businesses, it could imply easier access to larger markets and a fair business environment. For researchers, it could mean more chances to develop their ideas. For jobseekers, it could be new training possibilities.
EU funds flow out to the recipients within the Member States and in third countries in accordance with the priorities that the Union has identified. Less prosperous Member States receive proportionately more than the richer ones and most countries receive more than they pay in to the budget.

For further information regarding the EU budget, we would like to invite you to the web site of European Commission’s Directorate-General (DG) for Budget at:
http://ec.europa.eu/budget/media/int...e/index_en.htm

For further information regarding the EU budget you might contact the Budget DG directly via the following email address:
budget@ec.europa.eu

We hope that this information will be of use to you.

With kind regards,

EUROPE DIRECT Contact Centre
