When we didn’t believe the EU could get much more petty, it has decided to reduce Nigel Farage’s MEP salary by a HALF. 

An investigation by EU parliamentary authorities concluded Mr Nigel Farage had diverted EU funds towards national political activities.

Mr Farage will be made to pay back £35,000 to Brussels, by having half of his £7,535-a-month MEP salary taken away from him between January and October.

A spokesman for the European Freedom and Direct Democracy group made the following statement: “There is a vindictive campaign by the European Parliament of selective persecution of Eurosceptic MEPs, parties and groups.

“This allegation is all part of their politically motivated assault.”

Is this the price you pay for taking on the political establishment?
