EU spends 5% of funding 'in error' - World News, Breaking News - Independent.ie

"That means that at least 95% of total payments made in 2009 were correct," said EU anti-fraud and audit commissioner Algirdas Semeta.

According to the Court of Auditors, an "error" can be anything which amounts to "a deviation from the regulatory requirements". In many cases that means a wrongly signed form, or EU money spent after a contract deadline has passed, is chalked up as a spending "error".
What now?

How should we spend our money?
