The EU justification for expenditure, a decade long story in the making.

Brexit is forcing not only a re-budgeting exercise but a new level of accountability, all 27 will be asking questions of Brussels and the men in charge:

Brexit set to blow hole in common EU budget, Brussels warns

Paper suggests ways to fill gap, including taxes and overhaul of farm spending

They flag the challenge of recruitment, odd?

    While Brussels will present more detailed proposals next year, the paper sets out five broad reform “scenarios”, including scaling back the budget, establishing a system where groups of member states would establish common pots of money for particular projects, and a “radical redesign”.


How the narrative and discourse goes will be interesting, of course they blame has to be anywhere but Brussels.
