Scandal, corruption and buggery are all word we associate with the EU and the MEPs that inhabit the corridors of their Brussels hive. Scurrying like parasites looking for the next teat of the taxpayer to suckle at, growing fat on the efforts of those they claim to represent. Sorry we got hit by the bedroom tax this month we've only got one bedroom but because we sleep in the kitchen (closer to the fridge) we got charged.
However we do have some sympathy for our MEPs, seriously we do. Pinky Promise.
It turns out that MEPs are now having to pay for extra salad in their meals. Judging by the size of most MEPs waistlines the salad price hike (or "Carrotgate" as some MEPs have dubbed it) will only affect a small number of people.
Sidney DuPontypont a MEP from Belgium (yes Belgium have a government, yes were as surprised as you are) says:
It is preposterous to penalise partakers in parsnips, particularly when pizza partakers are un-penalised.
The rabbit food eater went on.
We believe that bringing back big bonanza charges on beetroots will bring bacon back to breakfast.
They really like their P's and B's the Belgium's. We agree that the charging of extra for salad items in the canteen will probably make more MEP's gorge on taxpayer subsidised sausage sandwiches but that isn't the point. The point is who would you rather have making all your important decisions? A cooked breakfast eating meat murder machine who is content to eat anything with a face or a vegan? Yeah that's what we thought.
