EU can’t secure its own canteen, let alone its borders

1 Jun

I’ve been reading quite a shocking police report this morning.

On Friday, just yards from where I’m writing this to you now, a masked assailant raided the cash registers of one of the European Parliament’s canteen.

The crook snatched two cash boxes from the hands of a cashier and fled with about €1,200 (about £1,000).

Police searched the area and found a wig – but not the criminal.

Detectives say the man seemed “familiar” with the building.

It seems quite incredible, particulary at this time of increased vigilance due to the threat of terrorism, that security is quite so lax.

In February last year nearly €60,000 (about £50,000) was stolen from a bank on the European Parliament site and nobody has been caught.

It’s time to make this place more secure
