Lord help us

This headline on EU Observer fills me with dread and foreboding.
Spain to advise Poland how to spend EU money

Brothel is built with EU cash
A COUPLE have been arrested after about £36,000 of European Union aid was used to build a brothel in Chirivel, near Almeira, southern Spain.

The regional development subsidy had originally been earmarked for the construction of a riding school. The local authority gave its approval - only to discover later that the owners, a 44-year-old woman and her 50-year-old husband, had built a brothel instead. Police were called in.
