4) The hypocrisy of that man! To criticize others for what he does
all the time!
Good touch, the exclamation mark. Now forward it to that two-faced
scoundrel Nigel Farrage. That despicable man apparently still collects a
pension from the EU for his years of obnoxious existence as an MEP. A
He's still in post as an MEP; the lifetime pension comes after
"Nigel Farage is being docked half his monthly MEP salary after a
European parliament investigation alleged he had misspent public funds
intended for staffing his office.
The former Ukip leader, who recently bemoaned being ?53, separated and
skint?, will lose €40,000 (£35,500) in total, the Guardian has learned,
after European parliament auditors concluded he had misspent that amount
of EU funds."
"Farage, who has been an MEP for 18 years, has one of the worst
attendance records at the parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg. He is
ranked 748 out of 751 MEPs and has taken part in only 37% of votes in
the current parliamentary session, according to VoteWatch Europe.
The European parliament has played an unsung role in Ukip?s success,
giving the party funding and a platform it struggled to get in British
elections. European parliamentary authorities have in recent years paid
closer attention to how MEPs spend EU funds, after years of assuming
parties would do the right thing.
In 2016 a Ukip-dominated group was denied €501,000 in EU funds after it
emerged European money had been funnelled into the attempts to win
Farage a seat in the 2015 UK general election."
