THE Euro MP for Burton has called on fellow Euro politicians to have their accounts put under the microscope and audited.

Nikki Sinclaire, the We Demand a Referendum MEP for the West Midlands, made the calls after having her accounts successfully audited for the third year.

She said: “In times of financial austerity, it is important that the electorate know where their money is spent.”

She also slammed the European Union for not having its accounts audited for the past 18 years.

She said: “Transparency is my number one aim.

“With the European Union being unable to audit its accounts for the past 18 years, it is no wonder that the majority of this country questions our membership”.

Ms Sinclaire has also claimed to subsidise her own expenditure in 2012 by £40,851 which she said helped fund her work in the West Midlands.

She also claims to have subsidised her general expenditure from her own pocket by £119,744 between 2009 and 2012.
