"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

EU Funding: Where Some Of the £6.5bn Will Go

And that's only from Britain over the next few years.

It seems to be another EU day.  Old Holborn has been doing some digging and found an EU website which gives details of grants and funding, eg:
Classics of European Cinema in Translation, Palestine, 79000 €
Urban Councils Association of Zimbabwe Trust, 'To strengthen local democracy and dialogue through raising awareness on the importance of local governance and the value of participating in local government elections', 270000,00 Euros,
and so on.

At the moment the link is showing a blank page but keep trying or pop over to OH for updates on how some of our taxes are spent.
UPDATE: Eureka! It's back so here's my contribution:
Snowball Travels & Tours Ltd, Confidential, Nigeria, 10.000,00 euros

ps - what the heck's happening to Blogger today?  It's giving me nothing but grief.
