The Telegraph reports that "EU whistleblower wins a seat in Brussels"
Paul van Buitenen, the Dutch whistleblower whose revelations eventually forced mass resignations in the European Commission in 1999 has been elected to the European Parliament.
He obviously feels that the alleged reforms since 1999 supposedly spearheded by the British European Commissioner Neil Kinnock (ex leader of the Labour party), have not really changed the atmosphere of nepotism, corruption and expense fiddling.
How many of those involved in the scandals exposed in 1999 are now in jail ?
Is it any wonder that there seems to be increasing opposition to EUrope rather than to Europe per se ?
