Not listening, not listening!

Oh dear the MEP's are up in arms over the fact that a lot of countries finance ministers want to discuss their budget with them rather than just rubber stamping it. Seems the UK isn't alone after all in calling a halt on increasing the budget, and the MEP's do not like being told 'no'
TALKS over the European Union budget collapsed last night as MEPs boycotted discussions over Brussels' demand for an extra £13.8billion in spending money. Treasury ministers had been summoned to Brussels to continue negotiations after the first round of talks had descended into chaos as the European Parliament refused to discuss the 2013 budget.
Appears the ubermasters in the Reichstag believe that not listening will get them the answer they want which appears to be 'here's the money, no questions asked' After all what else can you ascribe to their actions in boycotting any talks over their budget.
The EU seems determined that austerity is something that happens to everyone else, particularly the Greeks, though I'm pretty sure they expect everyone else to help out at the cost of their own budgets and spending. After all this is the EU they're talking about and not something that the rules which would apply to lesser governments or countries be a factor in their thinking.

Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius

(Those whom the gods would destroy they first make mad)

Game on!
