Conservative MEP Calls EU Year of Citizens an Insulting Waste of Money


Speaking in the European Parliament on the 23rd October 2012, David Campbell Bannerman MEP for the Eastern Counties said that the EU was throwing money away on the nonsensical European Year of Citizens whilst the people of Europe were suffering from high taxes and job cuts. The MEP went on to say that it shows that the EU elite is hopelessly out of touch with the peoples it purports to represent.
