Car valeting - the key to the economy

We have all seen numerous examples of the EU flag on signs boasting that this or that project was funded by the EU. It would be more honest to state that the projects in question are funded by British tax payers who give their money to the Government, who in turn pass it on to Brussels, who waste a large proportion of it, before handing back a greatly reduced amount, then boasting of their generosity on the signs.

Driving through southern Hungary last week en-route to see the in laws we pulled up at a set of traffic lights and there too was one of the flags and signs prominently attached to a car valeting centre. The writing suggested that this was part of an EU effort to boost the local economy. I am sure that someone is benefiting from this, but I am not sure it will be the citizens of the town in question.
