Your taxes at work

If UKIP came up with a report that said our EU contributions were being spent on sending Belgian dance teachers to teach the people of Burkina Faso (GDP per capita $1,200) how to dance, you wouldn't believe it.

But some things are beyond parody.

"The aim is to offer socially disadvantaged young people in Africa an artistic training course which fuses tradition and modernity and promotes social and socio-cultural integration. Social, economic and health-related problems can lead to young people becoming drastically distanced from the societies in which they live."

Maybe, but that doesn't explain why we are paying for it.
