How about a 90% cut?

How about each member state hands over the requisite 1.33333234573775% (or whatever it is) of their own GDP to a central pot rather than the stupid system of receipts and rebates and contributions which enables the French to make virtually a zero net contribution and Ireland to be a net recipient?

an audit, not bloody likely, just for effect though - how about an independent audit.

Even if this were to be enforced, no doubt they would the internal auditors to the government of Nigeria!

Great video. The Tony Blair template for vivacious presentation. Lots of arm work.

Nomad - How about a 100% cut and dump the whole idea?

I'm betting that tens of thousands - if not hundreds of thousands - of suddenly unemployed EU bureaucrats would not tug at too many taxpayer heartstrings.

Verity: That was the idea, but I was saving 10% to pay for the few months it would take to dismantle all that infrastructure once everybody had gone home.

Nomad, well, OK, but I think that 10% of the EU budget is way over-inflated. Given the trillions, .0005 would be too much.
