Hard-pressed taxpayers can't afford to pay for the European Parliament to have its own Art Collection! Having found out that the various pieces of modern art that hang all over the European Parliament are just part of a larger EU Art Collection, Nick Griffin has written to President Martin Schultz and to the Commission in order to find out more about the scandal and how much it has already cost the unfortunate taxpayer.
Mr Griffin will publish the replies when they arrive and promises further action: "Once we're told just how much money has been wasted, and what the collection is supposed to be worth, I'll submit a Written Declaration proposing that no more taxpayers' money should be spent on this ludicrous mock regal folly. And then I'll push to sell the whole lot and put the money to better use. The political class need to understand that they can't go on spitting in the face of ordinary people like this."
