Poland uninterested in EU reform

With 2000 EU officials earning more than the UK Prime Minister, Polish politicians are hoping that they too can fleece taxpayers from across Europe.

Danuta Huebner managed to make her fortune that way, having gained her position through the usual 'family and friends' route.

On a wider note, the promised reform of the Common Agricultural Policy might still get blocked by France, with Polish help. I suppose I shouldn't complain too much, seeing as I benefit from an agricultural subsidy myself.

Poland has been lucky with the EU so far - especially in not being in a position to make the mistake of joining the now-doomed euro. The euro itself might continue to exist, but not with its present members.

I think this statement needs some clarifacation. It sounds as if Danuta Huebner has no competence at all, but got the job by pure chance.

Does that mean the UK prime minister earns so little, or the top 2000 EU official earn so much? Could you give any figures?

And worried about David Cameron being forced into the soup line?

Idiots jostling for power, best left alone (but monitored from a distance)
