European Union Groundhog Day
EU = mc18
It doesn't mater how fast you chase the European Commission, you never catch up with the money. This fact can be expressed as EU = mc18, where EU is the immovable object, mc = mass corruption and 18 is the number of years that it has been impossible to perform a budgetary audit.
Article 61 Supervening impossibility of performance
A party may invoke the impossibility of performing a treaty as a ground for terminating or withdrawing from it if the impossibility results from the permanent disappearance or destruction of an object indispensable for the execution of the treaty. If the impossibility is temporary, it may be invoked only as a ground for suspending the operation of the treaty.
18 years of non compliance feels fairly permanent to me.
