EU claims "clean bill of health" for failed accounts

The EU Commission has bizarrely announced a "clean bill of health for EU accounts" on its website.  I say "bizarrely" because the EU Court of Auditors has refused to sign off the EU's accounts for the 16th year in a row.

This doesn't even qualify as propaganda because propaganda implies some element of truth and this is an outright lie.

If a public company couldn't get its accounts signed off for a year it would be expected to de-list from the stock market, investors would lose confidence and the company would suffer sever sanctions for breaking company law.  The EU hasn't had it's accounts signed off by its own internal auditors for 16 years and it gets more power and more money.

The EU is as bent as a €9 note, the British government shouldn't hand over another penny until they deal with the endemic fraud and corruption that infests every department of the corrupt superquango.
