David Cameron and Angela Merkel both want to freeze the budget. But I don't think there’s a freezer big enough.
Most worrying is that chunks of the cash go missing. The European Court of Auditors reckons there is a 3.9% "error rate" which is a euphemism for the money being pauchled. Nearly five billion euros annually ends up "resting" in dodgy accounts.
The Euro auditors, based in Luxembourg, are obviously not up to the job. The task should be moved to Glasgow and put in the hands of a team of hard-nosed Scottish accountants.
