UKIP: Marta Andreasen, Mike Nattrass, getting drunk and those pesky OLAF investigations
COCOBU is the European Parliament's committee for budgetary control. It is the committee through which, we are told, Marta Andreason will expose the wrong doings of the evil empire.
This claim is a tad flawed.
Marta did manage to drag herself into the office early on Wednesday - about 9 am - but that is as good as it got! She strolled into COCOBU where the first item on the agenda was the "Discharge 2008 : EC general budget - Section III - Commission and seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth European Development Funds (EDFs)". This was, of course, mind numbingly boring. But that never worried the great whistle-blower. She left after 15 minutes, (after signing in, of course). She never came back. Such an easy day's work she had at taxpayer's expense! You thought no-one would notice, didn't you sweetheart!
The meeting actually became very interesting. There were some very serious discussions about OLAF investigation procedures, and we are sure that Nutty Nattrass would have found this useful, especially as it related to time-frames that might affect his own case. But never mind, neither he nor Marta could be bothered to listen.
So what. At least she wasn't on the lash with the rest of the UKIP team, who turned up in Brussels en masse - drunk - late on Wednesday evening.
Its always very interesting to learn how UKIP spend the taxpayer's bucks.
