A lesson to all

The European Union today, with its thousands of members sitting comfortably within the lavish walls of its citadel of power, is already over-crowded.

A mixed selection of unelected members, all enjoying what, I consider to be, ridiculously high salaries plus perks.

It is my belief that their questionable spending has never been properly audited in the past 20 years.

Should they continue with their extravagant activities in the same vein, particularly with the possibility of Britain leaving the EU, the whole assembly will probably disintegrate into bankruptcy.

A lesson to all for what treating its members with, what I believe, is arrogance and disdain.
