Believe it or not, former EU Commissioner Peter Mandelson is still getting between 45% and 60% of his former £103,000 EU salary, as revealed in The Times. Vested interests, perhaps?
Mandy isn't alone though. All former members of the European Commission are entitled up this pay off for three years after they leave office as an EU Commission in order to "ease" their return to the job market. Around 17 other former Commissioners are still getting EU money pumped into their bank accounts.
The EU really is a leech on the back of British taxpayer's to fund the lavish lives of Mandelson and Co.
