Why should I pay to support the gravy train lifestyle of EU officials?

The costs of running the EU are actually remarkably low, despite the often repeated rhetoric.  The European Parliament costs each European citizen €3.10 per year which contrasts sharply with the UK Parliament which costs over twice as much at €7.30 per person per year.[1]


Furthermore, the Brussels bureaucracy, when assessed by the European Court of Auditors, was shown to have a less than 1% error in its budget and the financial control systems in place were described as effective.[2]
