It's Got to Go.

A report today on yet another bunch scamming the EU out of money.

A criminal gang of professionals and academics led by a Sicilian professor defrauded the European Union of millions of pounds in a fake youth training programme, Italian police claimed yesterday after a string of dawn raids across the country.

OK, so they've been caught, will probably (given the Italian justice system) get punished, all is rosy, no?

According to investigators, the organisation pretended to hold courses for young people in the showbusiness and tourism sectors, mostly in the Sicilian capital, Palermo.

What in hell is our tax money doing paying for courses in showbusiness and tourism? Doesn't Italy already have enough fat tenors, lecherous tour guides and indolent waiters?
It's got to go.
