More money down the drain

The Times reports that the EU will spend £1 million on an all-night rave in Berlin on 24 March to celebrate the EU’s 50th anniversary and the signing of the Berlin Declaration, notes Open Europe. There will be 100 DJs performing at 35 nightclubs across the German capital from 11pm until dawn and young Berliners will be able to roam around the city in specially provided buses for the EU-subsidised price of €12.

What is it about politicians and taxpayers' money? They wouldn't spend any of their own cash on such stuff.
