Is the EU trying make us all bankrupt?

Not only did the UK helped bail out the euro the other week, even though we aren't part of the Euro, but now the EU want us to pay to cut greenhouse emissions.

EU sets toughest targets to fight global warming

That is the headline to this article.

An extract;

Europe will introduce a surprise new plan today to combat global warming, committing Britain and the rest of the EU to the most ambitious targets in the world. The plan proposes a massive increase in the target for cutting greenhouse gas emissions in this decade.

The European Commission is determined to press ahead with the cuts despite the financial turmoil gripping the bloc, even though it would require Britain and other EU member states to impose far tougher financial penalties on their industries than are being considered by other large economies.

The plan, to cut emissions by 30 per cent on 1990 levels by 2020, would cost the EU an extra £33 billion a year by 2020, according to a draft of the Commission’s communication leaked to The Times.

Do those bureaucrats in the EU not realise that the whole of the EU is in a financial mess, or don't they realise this because they live on another planet?

Sometimes I think that the bureaucrats want to bankrupt the countries in the EU on purpose, then they step in to take over the accounts of the countries, but on condition they give more powers to the bureaucrats.

These idiots who make these announcements, must live in a cocoon away from reality, because we all need to save money and make cuts to our spending, not spend more money to prevent something that could be a natural occurring event.

Has anyone wondered what the EU bureaucrats are doing to help save money?

Will they take a cut in their pay?

Will they save money, by cutting the amount of MEPs and bureaucrats?

What do you think?
