Why is no one taken to account over Euro cash waste?

Those who think the EU is a jolly fine institution that works for our benefit, might like to think again.

Last year the EU misspent £5.7b. of taxpayers money, according to inspected accounts. This was up by 20% on the previous year.

The money was spent on pastures that were forests, farms that did not exist, roads that were not needed, as well massive errors in rural development, the environment, fisheries and health.

This is on top of the fact that the EU has not had its books signed off in 19 years. Someone must know where the money is going, so why is nobody taken to account over this shameful waste?

It appears to be a case of “carry on regardless”.
