Riding the EU gravy train
You have just got to watch this video, shot in the European Parliament in Brussels. The footage was taken at 7.00am one Friday morning by a German TV crew. Check out the MEPs with their cases already packed, signing in to claim their massive whack, before darting off to the airport.
Well, that was their plan, until the camera crew arrived. Then they darted around trying to hide their faces from the camera. Trust me, it's like Fred bloody Karno's, it really is.
