Re: B***** and Andrew Marr
I read an article a year or so ago and it stated that the running costs of the European Parliament is approximately €1.756 billion euros per year, according to its 2014 budget about €2.3 million per MEP and none of this money is audited or accountable. There is another cost that still can't be justified and that is once a month, for just four days, the European Parliament moves city. All 751 of its MEPs and everyone else who works at the European Parliament move offices and work from one city to another. At a cost of £150m a year, the staff arrive in Strasbourg by train, plane and car. The French are the only Country that veto the scrapping of this process.
