Graft and Corruption at the EU

Clamour grows to reveal the secret report that throws light on EU 'fraud' - Times Online Paying family members a salary. Paying salary to imaginary people. Paying Christmas bonuses that were "extravagant." All with taxpayer funds. (As much as €15,000 per month) All in secret.
The excessive secrecy surrounding the audit backfired when its existence was revealed by Chris Davies, a Liberal Democrat MEP, who stood by his claims that it showed criminal levels of fraud. “I think if names were attached to some of the cases of malpractice highlighted, then prison should follow,” he said.
Graft and corruption follow politics. Like flies follow garbage. That's why it should be important to control government - that isn't the current trend anywhere.
