There was a really interesting article in last week's 'Sunday Times' written by Bojan Pancevski.
The EU is splashing out billions of pounds to smooth the access of countries that have no chance of joining the bloc in the foreseeable future.
Around £8.3 billion has been spent to assist Turkey, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and several others that, according to the EU officials, will not become members. Britain is contributing £1.1billion.
Mats Persson, head of the London-based think tank Open Europe, said the EU risked"sending billions of taxpayers money into black hole"if there was no prospect of the recipient countries joining the bloc.
"The EU is giving billions to countries such as Turkey, Albania and Bosnia, although these countries do not have any prospect of actually joining even in the long term," said the Earl of Dartmouth, a UKIP (UK Independence Party) Member of European Parliament. "As millions of British people face an uncertain financial future when the spending review comes fully into force, it is high time for the EU to learn some respect for its taxpayers."

David Gandy is my favourite male model. I saw him on TV a few months ago and he seemed like a nice chap. Anyway, these are some of my favourite photos of David Gandy. I think he has got beautiful eyes and they look amazing in b&w photos too.

I have no idea whatever has happened to Charlie Hunnam. He made a couple of movies. He has always reminded me of Brad Pitt. What do you think?
|Here he doesn't look like Brad Pitt but I really like his outfit.|

I think Steve McQueen is one of the main contender for King of Cool (others are probably, well for me anyway, James Dean and Robert Redford). McQueen's grandson's (who by the way, really CAN work a tux) photo can be seen right at the very end of this post).
Steve McQueen's grandson Steve R. McQueen can be seen as Jeremy Gilbert in Vampire Diaries.
