The data mined by the Preisvergleich investigators will only serve to fuel rising resentment in the UK with the entire European project.

An average monthly salary and other allowances of £15,239 is received by an MEP, totalling £182,826 a year.

A MEP’s salary adds a base fee and additional extras such as allowances, attendance fees and travel expenses.

In addition, the costs for offices and staff for the plenary members of the European Parliament make up an amount of up to £18,125 per month or up to £217,507 annually.

This means, said the survey, that MEPs earn 878 per cent more than the Herr, Mr or Monsieur of the EU - the average EU wage as listed by statisticians in Brussels is 18,617 pounds per annum.
