That dreadful EU that wastes so much of our money has now done the right
thing by forcing Farage to repay money that he wrongfully claimed as
part of his expenses.

No wonder Nigel wants a second referendum - he's now strapped for cash
so he wants someone to pay him to lead a fresh Brexit campaign, which is
what he's good at.

Nigel Farage is being docked half his monthly MEP salary after a
European parliament investigation alleged he had misspent public funds
intended for staffing his office.

The former Ukip leader, who recently bemoaned being “53, separated and
skint”, will lose €40,000 (£35,507) in total, the Guardian has learned,
after European parliament auditors concluded he had misspent that amount
of EU funds.

Financial controllers have been investigating the role of Christopher
Adams, who was hired by Farage to work in the European parliament as his
assistant.

Never mind. When he gets to 63, he will get a £73,000 pension from the
EU, which will probably be part of the divorce bill we have to pay.
