Baroness Ashton to spend £8.5m on PR

Did you read that the unelected Baroness Ashton is to spend £8.5 million polishing the image of her new EU diplomatic service despite having four spin doctors of her own and the free use of the European Commission’s 1,000-strong communications staff.

The substantial sum of money, equivalent to a third of the £30 million allocated for the Libyan refugee crisis this week, has raised questions over the  EU foreign minister’s priorities at a time when European diplomacy is struggling to keep up with events in the Arab world.

Not sure why anyone has to ask questions to determine Her Ladyship’s Priorities.  It is all about glorifying the EU uber alles.
