Bubbly in Brussels

Just got back from launching our new book The Great European Rip-Off at the European Parliament in Brussels. The launch was a modest affair – after all, we had to pay for it ourselves. But all around us in the Parliament building there were scores of parties and receptions and all kind of other events for the euro-politicians and their hangers-on. At every one you could get unlimited quantities of champagne, fine wines and delicious canapes with caviar, smoked salmon and other delicacies – paid for, of couse by European taxpayers. Then after quaffing their champagne, the euro-elite poured out into the local restaurants to stuff themselves – again at our expense. There may be a bit of a recession throughout the EU – but in Brussels it’s party time, thanks to the generosity of European taxpayers.
