President van Rompuy is a very expensive insult to the taxpayers of Europe.Lord Stoddart of Swindon, co-president of the Campaign for an Independent Britain (CIB) with Sir Richard Body, dryly summing up the reality of the EUnion and it's (not mine!) president.
He is unelected, having been chosen during a dinner. His annual salary of £273,814 is greater than that of President Obama and, although funded by the taxpayer, he cannot be voted out of office.
However, this is a drop in the ocean compared to the £252 million being spent on the creation of a palace for him to work in. President van Rompuy is part of the new overpaid and unelected political elite which is now the real Government of Britain and all the other member states.
Why is it we don't have anyone in the Netherlands who dares to roundly condemn the farce that is the EUnion for what it is?
