Re Luigi XVI fu decapitato per molto meno.
Mr Jean-Claude Juncker si sta trattando davvero molto, ma molto bene. I Commissari europei non son certo da meno. Per le sue comodità non bada certo a spese. È un popolare, uno che è vicino alla gente, uno che sa che il popolo gli vuole bene e che gli impone di trattarsi al meglio. La gente non capisce che si deve viaggiare comodi e che lo champagne costa un occhio della testa.
Se non fosse per questo, di certo vivrebbe con una manciata di miglio ed un po’ di acqua piovana, assiso a mensa con Sorella Povertà e Cugina Miseria.
Insomma, a dirla franca, Mr Jean-Claude Juncker è un San Francesco mancato.
Non fate ciò che dice e nemmeno ciò che fa.
Ci si vedrà a Filippi, carissimo Mr Juncker e carissimi Commissari: le elezioni europee si stanno avvicinando.

Jean Claude Juncker used private jets for almost half of his official visits this year, with one overnight trip costing £32,000, despite EU laws banning ‘air taxis’ unless there are no other flights
«- The European Commission President used jets for 21 out of 43 official trips
– Daily Mail analysis revealed that his transport bill is likely hundreds of thousands
– Mr Juncker used his 2018 State of the EU speech to warn of climate change
Jean-Claude Juncker used private jets for nearly half his worldwide ‘missions’ this year, official figures reveal.
These ‘air taxis’ should only be used when no suitable commercial flights can be found, according to EU Commission rules.
But Mr Juncker chartered private jets for 21 out of 43 official trips between January and November, racking up a bill that is likely to run into hundreds of thousands of pounds, a Daily Mail analysis reveals.
The revelation sparked calls last night for the EU Commission president to be investigated over his allegedly ‘excessive’ use of private flights, which are funded by EU taxpayers.
The cost of one private jet for a one-night trip to Tunisia alone was up to £32,943. The EU Commission declined to give the exact bill, but confirmed that Mr Juncker flew with a 13-person delegation and that travel costs averaged £2,357 per person.
He met Tunisian officials to discuss projects between the north African country and the EU during the trip in October.
In addition, Mr Juncker, who after a pay rise will earn more than £350,000 a year, claimed £428 for a hotel and £47 for ‘daily allowances’.
The cost of another private jet for a visit in November to Helsinki in Finland, where he had dinner with world leaders before attending the European People’s Party conference, was up to £23,422.
Again the EU Commission declined to give the exact bill, but confirmed that Mr Juncker went with an 11-person delegation and that travel costs averaged £1,953 per person.
The most expensive ‘per person’ private jet trip was a one-night visit to Madrid for a lecture and to meet King Felipe VI of Spain before attending an exclusive ceremony for the Marquis de Villalobar award.
Travel per person is listed as £6,734, but the overall cost of the private jet has not been revealed.
A four-night tour of West Balkan countries was the second most expensive per person for travel, at £6,374.
Other private jets were used when Mr Juncker was giving speeches and two were for ‘working’ dinners and lunches with German chancellor Angela Merkel. He took six private jets to events in neighbouring Germany.»
Is that where our money is going? EU boss Juncker splurges £24K to charter a private jet for Rome trip as shock new figures reveal the staggering travel bill racked up by Eurocrats
«– Juncker in an EU delegation that chartered plane for one night stay Rome
– EU commissioners racked up a £450,000 bill in travel expenses in two months
– Shock revelations came to light after 2-year legal battle by human rights group
EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker splurged £24,000 of taxpayer’s money to charter a private jet for a one-night trip to Rome, shock new figures reveal.
The revelation was part of a slew of expensive travel bills exposed after a European Commission finally handed over the document after a two-year legal battle.
The documents show that jet-setting European Commissioners racked up a £452,770 (500 euros) bill in travel expenses in just two months.
Many contain bills for so-called air taxis – private planes the Eurocrats charter when ordinary flights do not suit their schedule.
Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage branded the claim ‘outrageous’ and ‘clearly over the top’.

«The online version of British newspaper Daily Mail has revealed that the President of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker was squandering European taxpayers’ money by using private jets to fly around in 2018.»
«Jean-Claude Juncker and his top officials fly by private jet between Brussels and Strasbourg – a journey of just 220 miles – as EU forks out for €12m air deal.
Jean-Claude Juncker and his top officials fly by private jet between Brussels and the European Parliament in Strasbourg just 220 miles away, documents show.
The European Commission – which paid €12.6 m for the air deal four years ago- has access to a fleet of six jets, which it dubs “air taxis”, to ferry Mr Juncker and other high-ranking officials around the world.
It includes a £4.3 million, seven-passenger Cessna Citation jet to make journey to Strasbourg for the parliaments’ monthly four-day sittings, despite the fact that daily commercial flights operate between the two cities.
The parliament spends around £200,000 to charter two express trains to take officials, MEPs and others from Brussels to Strasbourg on a Monday morning and back on a Thursday afternoon. Their papers are taken in black plastic crates in eight lorries.
In addition, well-placed sources say, the Parliament also charters a large aeroplane each Wednesday afternoon for around 100 staff who wish to return to Brussels early. It spares them the public train, which takes nearly six hours due to frequent stops. ….
A contract for six planes was awarded in 2012 to a Belgian aircraft company, at a cost of €12.6 million. A similar tender was recently advertised, providing 870 hours’ flying time over five years to destinations that also include Hanoi, Cape Town, New York and Tel Aviv….

«Una bella dimostrazione di austerità e coscienza ambientale, dal momento che proprio Juncker l’anno scorso declamò un toccante discorso sui pericoli del cambiamento climatico, provocato principalmente dalle emissioni industriali e dal traffico aereo. “Il nostro compito è lasciare un pianeta pulito e vivibile alle generazioni future”, ha tuonato. Ma molti dei voli da lui utilizzati coprivano distanze relativamente brevi, come Berlino-Bruxelles. Era davvero necessario saturare ulteriormente i cieli europei con emissioni di jet privati? L’ennesimo “scivolone” (questa volta non causato dal presunto abuso di alcol) del presidente della Commissione Europea, così solerte nel predicare le misure d’austerità e così poco puntuale nell’applicarle su se stesso.» [Fonte]
Tra cinque mesi i mai sufficientemente esecrati lebbrosi populisti avranno accesso alla contabilità europea, finora loro preclusa: segreto di stato gelosamente custodito, come anche ha ribadito quello specchio di giustizia che è la Suprema Corte Europea.
Mr Juncker e la sua Commissione, si pensi solo a Mr Moscovici ed ad Herr Oettinger, cani mastini del rigorismo economico, hanno per anni speso in largo ed in lungo il denaro del Contribuente europeo: a loro confronto Eliogabalo e Sardanapalo erano persone probe e sobrie.
Se è vero che Re Enrico II fu un gran criminale, gli riconosciamo la potestà che ebbe nel proclamare: “Chi mi libererà da costui“, decretando così la condanna a morte di Tommaso Becket.
I criminali assassinato i probi, ma i popoli insorgono e giustiziano i tiranni.

European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, chartered private jets for 21 out of 43 official trips between January and November 2018, a Daily Mail analysis has found. Travel costs for a 13-strong delegation one-night trip to Tunisia amounted to €36,000 and a dinner with world leaders in Finland before the European People’s Party conference cost €26,000. ‘Air taxis’ should only be used when no suitable commercial flights can be found.
