EU fraud

EU auditors have refused to sign off the EU accounts for the eleventh year in a row due to a lack of basic financial controls within the EU. Why should the UK, a net contributor to the EU, tolerate fraud and mismanagement on an industrial scale?

The UK should curtail its funding of the EU until it has the some basic financial controls in place. After eleven years, how else can the UK government assure the UK public that their money is being spent (wasted!) more effectively?

Absolutely disgraceful. If the EU was a company its directors would be in jail by now.
