    But it isn’t EU fraud…..it says so in the title.


    Fraud against EU dropped 20% last year

    Same as any business, if fraud is committed, somebody has to pay. Doesn’t matter if it’s from within or an external source, it's still a loss to somebody. Just saying, it’s good that it’s gone down.

    mottie and his fellow Wailers won't see the difference or notice the nuance. They see the words EU and fraud. That's all they need to get the pitchforks out.

    I don’t think you quite read my post. Have another go and get an adult to explain it to you.

    Have their books been signed off by the official auditors? In recent years they refused to fully sign them off as an accurate representation of the EU finances as there was so much money 'missing/unaccounted for' in the balance sheets.

    Your question is based on fake news/propaganda spread by Brexiteers.
    "The Court of Auditors has signed off on the EU’s accounts for every year since 2007"

    I read both the thread title and the opening posts and both used the words 'EU fraud'.

    Both statements are wrong both in context and in grammatic delivery and both deem to mislead. So does this anti-EU diatribe....
    You won - we're out for goodness sake.

    Brexit - huge pile of poo.

    Now of this 371m - how much was our share?

    I would be more concerned with the £200 plus million that Essar Energy is not paying the HMRC in deferred VAT.

    The Indian billionaires behind the ailing Stanlow oil refinery have siphoned off more than £500 million in dividends in recent years. The Ruia brothers, whose Essar empire controls the refinery in Ellesmere Port that accounts for a sixth of Britain’s fuel supplies, have extracted $717 million (£518 million) from its UK arm since 2017. Stanlow is now fighting for its future after Covid crunched its finances. Essar Oil UK’s main business is Stanlow, which it bought from Shell for £801 million in 2011. - Sunday Times

    I hope its not another Greensill with Gupta.

    These Indian billionaires really do like stripping UK companies.

    Anyone seen Pretty Woman?
    These foreign owners have an Edward Lewis in every one of them but I doubt there is ever a Vivian Ward in any of their lives.
