MORE ON THE EURO-SCANDALS:

The European Commission has overseen an “intolerable” breakdown of EU financial control while subjecting whistleblowers to vindictive treatment, Euro-MPs said yesterday.

The European Parliament’s annual report on the EU’s £70 billion budget expressed “extreme alarm” over failures in the commission’s accounting system, finding that the books did not add up and large sums of money could not be traced.

As they say, “which corruption scandal?”
