Credit seems to be the hardest thing to give

Stanley Pignal, the FT writer is highlighting the fact that Italy is going to have to hand back 720,000 Euros after they paid that money for an Elton John gig in Venice,
Sorry seems to be the hardest word

But of course whilst he admits
the Elton John case only became an issue after a member of the European parliament started using it as an example of where the money goes.
He cannot quite bring himself to credit the MEP in question. I wonder why that is? Could it be that the MEP is Mr Mario Borghezio, a representative of the Northern League and EFD Group member. We wouldn't want DG FT supporting a Eurosceptic now, would we?
