UKIP MEP James Carver says the arrogance of the European Union knows no bounds following news that Brussels has increased EU budget by €10 billion despite failing yet another audit.
The EU’s budget is to be hiked to €155 billion after an agreement was made by the EU Conciliation Committee despite spin and rhetoric from David Cameron over wanting a reduction of the budget.
West Midlands MEP James Carver, who is UKIP’s national spokesman on the Commonwealth, said the increase was a major embarrassment to the Prime Minister and was a further demonstration of how our Government was failing to stand up for Britain and its interests.
Commenting today, Mr Carver, said: “UKIP is the only party that is fighting Britain’s corner in the EU Parliament. Cameron’s so-called renegotiation on our membership of the EU is about spin and satisfying his own rebelling backbenchers. It’s all smoke and mirrors from a Pro-EU Prime Minister.
“The increase to the EU budget, when they preach about austerity and the need to tighten our belts, is a gratuitous display of hypocrisy when they have once again failed to obtain a clean bill of health from the auditors.
“It is time to pull out of the EU and manage our own affairs from Westminster. We need to leave this every increasingly costly club and stop paying our every increasing subs to be members.”
