Feckless Eurocrats Party in Brussels
May 10, 2012
MEP Paul Nuttall has hit out at out feckless Eurocrats partying while millions of families struggle to make ends meet.
Various attractions – bizarrely including laughter yoga – are being staged on Saturday in Brussels in a Festival of Europe Open Day.
It has been planned around this week’s Europe Day anniversary of the foundation of the first step towards European union.
Paul Nuttall, Deputy Leader of UKIP and North West Euro-MP, said, “I am sure the millions left destitute and unemployed by the EU’s ruinous policies will join me in denouncing these events. The Eurocrats are laughing at us – at our expense.
“We are living through a eurozone crisis and here these bureaucrats are fiddling away while Rome burns, or in this scenario while various countries in Europe teeter on the brink of financial collapse.
“It is just appalling that Brussels chiefs are staging a celebration – with taxpayers money, of course – at a time of worsening political and economic crisis across the EU.”
The events planned include displays of Tai Chi, cookery, flag throwing, a troop of frolicking clowns and a live performance by a 69-year-old DJ called Mamy Rock.
“It is ironic the agenda includes flag throwing when the EU is forcing public buildings in the UK to fly the EU flag for a week or face a £10,000 fine. And laughter yoga is about learning ‘to laugh for no reason’. Well, there is certainly nothing to laugh about in the EU right now, added Mr Nuttall.
