What the EU ‘didn’t’ do for you in 2010

If you were wondering what the EU actually did for you in 2010, have a look at this taxpayer-funded video released by the Commission just in time for Christmas.

"What has the EU done for you in 2010?"

On a long list of claimed achievements, such as "fair trials" and "boosting jobs", we were struck by this claim, which was followed by flashing images of euro notes and a euro symbol:

“Securing a sound economy and stronger financial markets"

Can this really be serious? Of all the years to spin this line they chose 2010 - the year when the flawed construct if the Single Currency nearly brought the entire European economy to its knees, forcing multi-billion euro bail-outs.

Or maybe they just got this mixed up with the EU's wish list for Santa. While they are at it, why don’t they just say world peace?
