For the 17th time since January 2010, Britain's top representative to the European Union, Baroness Ashton again missed an entire Brussels meeting on Wednesday, leaving Britain without a voice in the most important EU law making forums, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Ashton's commitment to the job, for which she receives a salary of more than 230,000pounds a year, has been questioned by the UK officials and diplomats.
The EU Foreign Policy chief, who also works as European Commission's vice-president, earns more than any other British cabinet ministers, according to the report, but her performance has raised serious questions.'
