I think simplifying the process should help with compliance and the savings always come in handy:
DailyExpress: Axing EU bin rules ‘will cut recycling schemes from 400 to 3 and save £2bn [over the next 20 years]'

Hmm £2b over 20 years is actually nothing either way it's only £100m/year even ignoring commercial waste that's on;y £4/household
So firstly getting rid of mad EU rules should save much more than that.

stewgreen, the disappointing truth, is that recycling schemes were supposed to be cheaper, and possibly profitable for Local Authorities and hence taxpayers.

Another Big Green Blob Fail, despite all the money wasted by dreamers and scoundrels.

DailyExpress: EU WILL NOT pay for UK Lords pension pots: German MEP blasts peers' £10m Brussels pensions

1. Pensions contributions should be paid during employment. The resultant fund, the pension fund, is then used to pay regular payments, after retirement. This would mean that all their pension funding should have been done while they were in their job, so there should be no more funding required, from the UK.

2. Are the regular payments to, among others, the Kinnocks and Heseltine, a pension? They are dependent on them not saying anything derogatory about the EU and its agenda, (difficult I know,) and maybe, a hint that they should be supportive in 'times of trouble', which they are strenuously doing now! It is Easy, Well Remunerated Employment!

3. I don't think MEPs are in the same position: they should get their pension, no matter what they say.

4. Continued payments may mean that they be receiving money from a foreign power, so it should preclude them from having membership of the House of Lords.

5. If the EU finances are in the mess that they may well be in, the money demanded should be added to the appropriate column in the final financial assessment for Brexit.
