Add the total and complete hypocrisy of France to the list of reasons to avoid putting a cent in the EU.
We already know about Spain where Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy was “allegedly” receiving bribes from property developers throughout the housing bubble… while THREE different treasurers have been accused of everything from money laundering to fraud.
Rajoy’s defense to the allegations? “I repeat what I said Saturday: everything that has been said about me and my colleagues in the party is untrue, except for some things that have been published by some media outlets.”
Then there’s Italy where Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has a track record a mile long (including numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, tax evasion, and collusion with the mafia).
Berlusconi’s latest charge is for bribing an Italian senator to change political sides. His defense? Bribery is a “necessary part of business.” Mind you, this is the same man who once called tax evasion a God-given “right.”
