Edith Cresson Goes Unpunished

Its official, there is no penalty for helping your friends onto the gravy train.

Europe's highest court ruled yesterday that Edith Cresson, the former EU commissioner, acted improperly in hiring her dentist as a top scientific adviser but should keep her £30,000 a year pension from Brussels.
She is guilty but she recieves no punishment. Just a thought, but what do you think they would do if a former commissioner joined the Better Off Out campaign. Do you think they would be so forgiving?

Dental hygeine is very important! Now we know where and how environmental and health policy is formed in the EU. If Wallstoms pet project, the REACH (for bankruptcy and isolation) goes through the EU is doomed. I don't know when it finally goes into effect but the US is trying to block it at the WTO as it is not only ignorant but protectionist. The EU will be like Cuba with 30 year old laptops being coveted because new one are not allowed to be sold because they contain mercury, lead, and come type of battery and are illegal to be sold.

Edith Cresson was a member of a European administration under Prodi which was corrupt and which had to resign. So was the Welsh windbag. He stayed on to sack some more whistle blowers and now has a rich sinecure provided by a corrupt ZaNuLabour British government.The Deputy Prime Minister of this British government will not resign despite multitudinous dishonourable activities.
So what on earth makes you think poor Edith should be punished.
