Ashton - The Robber Baroness!

The cost of the EEAS under the useless creature calling herself Baroness Ashton has its hands in the pockets of the entire EU citizenry, with no ability to perform any useful function whatsoever. A report in today's Daily Telegraph is linked here. Any slightly in touch EUofficial or MEP, grasping the realities of today's world economy, would draw back from such excesses, possible aware that the growing deep unpopularity of their functionaries is rapidly spiralling out of control. Robber Barons of the past had nothing on these greedy occupants of the ivory towers of the EU , therefore, a seemly exit from the EU now appears an increasingly unlikely scenario. On 11th April 2009, as invited, I informed President Barosso of the dangers that he then faced, which were repeated on this blog, read here, elsewhere I warned MEPs that things were likely to deteriorate so quickly that they might wish to consider the wisdom of joining such a corrupt group, perhaps they now should reconsider the wisdom of their profligate wastage of others hard earned money. A quote from April 2009: +++++ The world is facing economic melt down but none in the EU Commission, nor apparently in the EU Parliament recognise the realities of this situation. Budget cuts are supposedly impossible. Waste is enormous. The last thing that the citizens of the EU can afford is 5 more years of MEP and EU Commission hugely inflated salaries, expenses and pension rights for essentially non-productive time-servers. Since the Commission launched its ‘Better Regulation Agenda’ in 2005, the annual cost of EU legislation across the bloc has gone from €108 billion to over €161 billion – an increase of 50%. Link This is ALREADY intolerable and will arouse more anger as economies continue to contract and unemployment grows! The means by which the Lisbon Treaty is being imposed is demeaning to the whole concept of democracy and European unity, the people involved make themselves despicable! When economic growth resumes a European Council should only then meet to appoint a new Convention of relatively young Europeans from the 27 present member states to consider a better way forward. To quote Oliver Cromwell "It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of .." There I ran out of permitted characters, others may wish to continue this quote +++++
