100 million is a spit in the ocean I know. But that is how much is wasted every year because the EU is so petty it never settled its internal bickering over where it should build its billion pound administrative buildings. Consequently we have a brilliant compromise; the administration is split between cities in Belgium and France and the whole carnival swaps locations every month. Clearly this is ridiculous in itself but what is more ridiculous is that the EU cannot fix this. It is so monolithic and so self-critically blind that they have let this absurdity persist. The whole thing is idiotic. But they do have lovely offices with art exhibitions and everything. So far in this blog I’ve tried to resist sarcasm, that bit slipped out because this is such an incredible situation.
Obviously this alone is not a reason to leave the EU but maybe it speaks or whispers to the competence of the EU.
