Labour still don't get it

Sharon Bowles MEP reports that in the European Parliament, Labour MEPs were part of [...] 'outer space' fiscal logic, voting against the freeze [in the EU budget, proposed by LibDem MEPs] and in favour of goodies such as £1.5 million for trade unions, more for the expensive EU earth observation programme, and more for EU information centres. She comments: "in this of all years, any increases on particular items needed to be funded by savings elsewhere, not through an overall increase in the EU budget".
