Euro Parliament Rejects Budget

Further proof if it were needed, that Our Dear Leader’s concessions on the EU budget were futile as well as expensive, were given to us by MEPs.

MEPs reject the European Council’s common position in its current form, because it does not guarantee an EU budget enhancing prosperity, competitiveness, solidarity, cohesion and security in future.
They want even more of our money.
MEPs were particularly critical of the €862 billion in funding agreed by leaders, which compares unfavourably with the €975 billion proposed by the Parliament in June.
Actually it compares very favourably from a Taxpayers point of view, as bad as it is, it is still €113 billion better. They were not completely dismayed though:
Nevertheless, Parliament welcomes the fact that Council managed to come up with a position, which allow the opening of negotiations.
And there we all were thinking that negotiations had closed.
