Spotty would be speechless. But he voted No, because he knew this kind of ************************ goes on all the time.

Yeah, those guys in Brussels who are imposing all the cuts on us?

They feel our pain, my friends.

Spotty voted No. And he was absolutely fu.cking right.

Another small nail in the coffin of the European project?

I wonder whether the judges in the European Court of Justice - or their staff - will benefit from this verdict.

National capitals voted in December 2009 to halve a planned 3.7 percent annual increase in salaries for EU officials, but on Wednesday (24 November) the European Court of Justice ruled the move to be illegal.

"The council [representing member states] exceeded the powers conferred on it by the [EU] staff regulations," the court said in a statement.

Annual pay adjustments for EU staff are calculated using an automatic mechanism based on the previous year's pay for civil servants in eight member states, including France, Germany, the UK and Italy.
