Everyone has a price

and we're getting pretty close to mine here:
EU Commissioners to retire with millions

The Parliament magazine reports on Open Europe's findings that EU Commissioners retiring this year will leave with over £1 million each in pension, transition and resettlement payments. This is in addition to the salary they earn, which also tops £1 million for a five-year term, and a host of other perks that Commissioners receive during their service, such as family allowances, subsistence and entertainment allowances.


Where. Do. I. Sign. UP?!

If only I weren't terminally lazy and unambitious. Curse my laid back hippie upbringing!
