The Great European Rip-off: How the Corrupt, Wasteful EU is Taking Control of Our Lives

by David Craig and Matthew Elliott
£8.99   paperback  Arrow Books Ltd (2009)

The Great European Rip-off: How the Corrupt, Wasteful EU is Taking Control of Our Lives by David Craig and Matthew Elliott As the June 2009 EU Elections approach, it's time for people across Europe to look at what really goes on in Brussels in our name.
 
The EU costs us over GBP700 billion a year - an incredible GBP1500 for every man, woman and child in Europe. So what do we get for our money? Politicians and administrators selflessly working to bring us efficient government? Well-targeted regulations that promote economic prosperity? A safe and free society? A well-protected environment and help for people in poorer countries?
 
Or is our money being squandered by a self-serving euro-elite of greedy politicians and unaccountable bureaucrats, and wasted in a feeding frenzy of fraud and corruption where a few lucky insiders become unimaginably rich at our expense? And is the tsunami of regulation pouring out of Brussels in reality strangling industry, destroying jobs, restricting personal freedom, desecrating the environment and further impoverishing the Third World?
 
Using their extensive network of insider sources, David Craig and Matthew Elliott smash through the secrecy and disinformation that are the Brussels hallmark to reveal what our European rulers are really getting up to.
 
The result is a horrifying story of how a once noble ideal is being destroyed by hypocrisy, kleptocracy and bureaucracy - and how we are all suffering as a result.
