13/9/2013: EU Leader Asks for Self-Censorship from the EU Auditors

If anyone needs a proof that EU elites are intrinsically incapable of accepting open, transparent & properly structured democratic governance, here it is: an EU President who seemingly explicitly advocates suppression or manipulation of facts to serve ideological purpose. This goes beyond simply paying for propaganda news channels and advertorial 'museums' or carrying out a calendar full of questionable in value activities at the expense of taxpayers. Europe's President now demands suppression of disclosure and spinning of reports by EU auditors. In effect we have a man who confuses executive power for absolute power and has a blurred notion of the role of audit in any society or institution.

Stunning admission by a senior EU leader of his innate disdain for checks and balances in the system he allegedly serves.
