Research carried out by the Daily Telegraph shows that in 2010, the EU will spend almost 1bn on pensions for its officials, giving the average retired eurocrat an income of almost 60,000. British taxpayers will contribute 135m to the scheme, at a time when many people in the UK in both the public and private sectors face cuts to their pension schemes.
