"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."

EUphemisms

MEPs cheered when EC President Barroso told them that proposals for 'self-funding' were going ahead as planned and would be presented by June 2011. 'Self-funding', of course, means taxpayer-funded by direct EU taxation.  Self-funding my @rse.  I can't believe the b@st@rds cheered.  Well, no, I can actually.  Once they're elected they completely forget they are supposed to represent the people.  All they do is represent the self-interest of the EU - which they have to do if they want to hang on to their pensions if/when they leave.   Not forgetting all those lovely perks such as reduced income tax or immunity from prosecution.  Europe's unemployment figures would fly through the roof if the EU ever dissolved but that's something I'd gladly pay to see.  Maybe we could have chain gangs of thousands of ex-eurocrats snaking across the continent digging ditches and building roads and every time a member of the public walked past they'd have to stand to attention and tug their forelocks as a small act of penitence.  B@st@rds.
