€600bn a year

Just try and get your head around that figure. Its enough to give €100 to every single person in the world. It could build so many hospitals, train so many doctors, that we could get medical check ups once a week. It could provide medicine to all of Africa's HIV positive population, for god knows how long. It might even be enough to finish the NHS computer system. So what are we really getting for that money?

The bureaucratic costs to business of complying with European legislation could be up to €600bn a year - almost twice original estimates - the European Union's enterprise commissioner admitted on Monday.
But who cares, being in favour of this monstrous stupidity is so much more sophisticated than asking questions.
