EU extortion must stop now
« on: August 15, 2012, 10:52:35 am »
Britain contributed £19.2billion to Brussel's coffers last year, equating to £53million every single day!
After rebates we get back, the net cost to British taxpayers was still a massive £11billion last year.
Just think what use that money could be put to here in the UK
There is no financial justification to staying in the EU if there ever was.

Time for the EU to end farm subsidies

The EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) gives all EU farmers a 'single farm payment' for each per acre of land.
Irrespective of whether the land is farmed or not.
CAP costs the EU €60bn a year 37% of its total budget.
