EU membership is only going to get more expensive.

EU statistician EuroStat has revealed that the cost of pensions for technocrats is set to make EU membership more and more expensive in the future.

By 2040 the UK's contribution to the pensions of those working for the EU will rise to £350 million a year, with the 100 best paid getting a pension of around £130,000 a year.

Our membership of the European Union is cleanly only going to get more and more expensive in the future. At a time of government cuts, surely such a projected increase is unfathomable? The Treasury is apparently "concerned", but what the hell are they actually going to do about it to ensure the EU's strain on taxpayers doesn't increase?
