Waste Waste Waste

Another day another small example of the waste that we have come to expect from our super state.

Millions of pounds of taxpayers' money are being wasted every year on EU interpreters who turn up for meetings only to find they are not needed. A report on the EU's annual interpretation budget to be published next week found 16%, or £17m, was wasted on staff who find themselves kicking their heels.
Apparently, MEPs, "our representatives", often order a translator for a meeting and then fail to show up. In a more rational world, such offenders would be punished, but this is the EU..... so..... nothing.
