Strasbourg's cunning plan...

The recent furore over the City of Strasbourg overcharging the European Parliament on rent for the Parliament's buildings in the City has achieved something remarkable - it has united British MEPs.

Nearly all the parties have condemned it, notably Labour's Terry Wynn, the Lib Dem's Sajjad Karim and Conservative Chris Heaton-Harris and, of course, all of UKIP. Bizarrely, ultra-sceptic Dan Hannan is in favour having Strasbourg as the single seat, in order to avoid the creation of Brussels as capital city of Europe, thus keeping Europe's 'federal' nature rather than creating a superstate.

There has been mounting pressure on the institutions involved to produce all the paperwork but, understandably, they weren't keen for everyone to find out just how big a cock up/rip off this really has been for the past 25 years.

Fortress EU has learned that the documents in question are now available to MEPs - including, of course, the British MEPs who shouted the loudest about this scam - but by some freak occurrence all the documents are only in French! How bizarre that an organisation that works in 21 languages doesn't have duplicates of these potentially incriminating documents in English, which is after all one of it's two official working languages...
