The Dutch were hit by a €642m bill for budget adjustments while we in Blighty got told to stump up £1.7bn. The EU have threatened to charge interest if the money is not paid on time. After that I assume they send the bailiffs in.

They’ll get short shrift if they come to the town of Edenbridge in Kent where they are setting up for fireworks night with an effigy of EC president Jose Manuel Barroso to burn.

Look and learn then look and burn Jose

Those of us in the UK are also glad to find out that nearly €109bn from €117bn spunked by the EU isn’t being signed off by accountants because it’s been misspent because of a lack of control.

I think we can now tell the EU to shove their bill where the sun doesn’t shine and to take the money from their “mis-spendings”
