Eurocrats squander £2billion on advertising
Martyn BrownIt pours £2billion into advertising – more than Coca-Cola spent in 2008 – according to the TaxPayers’ Alliance.
And ferrying MEPs and their offices between the European Parliament buildings in Strasbourg and Brussels costs another £150million a year.
Officials have frittered away pots of cash on other barmy projects, such as a £160,000 fitness centre for dogs that is still not open. Another £15million has gone on a European Parliament visitor centre, which was £5million over budget and three years late.
