Some might consider being paid to be an MEP in a European Parliament you supposedly don't believe in, might be a form of troughing Evil or Very Mad

Wasn't this Nick and Andrew Brons last year? Did they ever finalise details of their expenses:

BNP leader Nick Griffin was accused of joining “the expenses gravy train” today after it emerged that he has claimed hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The British National Party chief, who was elected last year as Euro MP for the North West of England, has submitted claims for more than £200,000 for his work in Brussels.

The costs, which come on top of his £82,000 MEP salary, include some £18,000 in “consultancy fees” and £10,000 in “agent fees”.

The BNP leader won his party's first seats in Strasbourg after attacking MPs for having their “snouts in the trough”.

After being accused of failing to be more open about his expenses, he has now published a version of his claims on his personal website.

Mr Griffin claimed £175,000 in “staff costs” for eight employees with titles ranging from “European researcher” to “campaigns co-ordinator”. A further £31,000 was for “office management costs”, including an office in his home. His “office costs” included £2,800 on “furnishings” and over £4,000 on “repair, maintenance and security”. Mr Griffin made a pre-election pledge to be transparent about his expenses. But he is yet to reveal how much he has claimed of his £270-a-day MEP's subsistence allowance, worth £40,000 tax-free every year, or how much he has claimed for travel.

Fellow BNP MEP Andrew Brons has not published any details of his expenses. He and Mr Griffin are jointly entitled to expenses of up to £530,000 a year. As well as staff allowances, both receive a “general expenditure allowance” worth more than £44,000 annually



Or what about the BNP accounts:


The BNP faces a Friday deadline to provide additional information to the Electoral Commission after the body ruled the party's accounts were inadequate.

Failure to comply could result in prosecution, according to The Times.

The BNP has already been fined for filing the accounts six months late in December last year, but the current issues stems from declarations on the party's election spending. The party is reported to have made claims that it spent up to half a million pounds on the European elections, but the accounts reveal a much lower figure of £282,843.

Despite the excuses from the Lefty Liberals, Laws was found guilty on not just one but six counts. -A trougher of enormous magnitude.- As far as his spinning is concerned it's just that - Spin. - Gleggy does not hate homosexuals, he is not homophobic, Simon Hughes being a case in point. Some MP's will use any excuse to justify troughing.

It was nothing to do with Clegg, it was his family. You can't get through to some people.

Is that the best you can do sassy? Question

I can see that you're obviously concerned with the waste in the EU, but do try and keep up, if you were THAT concerned, you could have found; http://www.nickgriffinmep.eu/content/accounts-expenses and found that Nick didn't claim anywhere near what he's entitled too! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

But of course, like most Lefty Liberals, if you don't like the truth, just smear people instead! Rolling Eyes
