Jonathan Arnott MEP comments on the latest OBR forecast

Commenting on the OBR forecast released today which showed an extra £1.2 billion being paid to EU institutions from their July forecast, Jonathan Arnott UKIP MEP and member of the Budgetary Control Committee said,

“This is indicative of the European Union. Original estimates are always long forgotten by the time the final bill arrives and unfortunately time and time again it is the British taxpayer who has to stump up.”

“For the forecast to rise £1.2 billion in less than half a year is extraordinary. It was less than a month ago when the EU failed to obtain a clean bill of health from the auditors yet again however we are now being told we have hand them another huge sum. Let’s hope that Mr Cameron does the right thing and says no to this new EU demand; my hopes are not high
