Like Bears in Woods EU accounts hold no surprises
It doesn't even make the newspapers any more: that's the shocking thing. We are so blasť about Brussels fraud that we no longer notice it. Yesterday, for the eleventh year in a row, the European Court of Auditors refused to approve the EU's accounts.
The President of the Court of Auditors told MEPs yesterday that "there has been no improvement" in how the EU runs itself.
The truth is that EU fraud is, in the correct sense of the word, structural: a product of how the Brussels institutions are set up.
Beyond reform: I wonder if the US has any of those White Phosphorus rounds left over looking for a good use?
