Sir: I find the current debacle engulfing the European Commission ironic in the extreme. Over the past five years I have carried out advisory work for agencies of the European Union and their procedures to stop me defrauding them were ludicrous in their extent.

For example, in order to claim back the cost of an air fare I had to produce a receipted invoice, the ticket counterfoil and the various boarding cards. Without any of these I would not have been reimbursed. Perhaps they should apply some of these provisions to the commissioners, who appear to need them more than I do.
