Apparently not though. That's right, the EU really is going to tip thousands and thousands of pounds of taxpayer's cash down the drain celebrating its Charter of Fundamental Rights. This is the Charter which only came through thanks to the collective blocking of referendums on the Lisbon Treaty across Europe by the EU and member state governments.
Of course it being the EU, the opportunity to indoctrinate young children is not being missed. A poem competition for kids is being held as they say what the Charter of Fundamental Rights apparently means to them. Oh how I would love to enter.
Hat tip to Gawain.
