The biggest confidence trick in history

How often have you heard that we in Britain receive large payouts from the EU to spend on projects here. There are signs on new developments everywhere, saying constructed with EU funding but there is no such thing.

The truth is that that the EU has no money of its own and relies on Germany and the UK to be the paymasters for everything. Whenever money is obtained from the EU for projects in Britain, it is nothing more than a part of our payment being returned to us with strings attached.

If you gave someone 20 pounds and he gave you 6 pounds back, on the understanding that you can only spend it on what he tells you and that you must also add another 6 pounds of your own to the expenditure, would you think that you had made a good deal? You would tell him to take a running jump, yet this is precisely what is happening with so called EU money

DON'T BELIEVE THE LIES ABOUT THE EU PAYING FOR ANYTHING - IT IS YOUR TAXES THAT ARE BEING SPENT

Their Infrastructure - Your Taxes

Anyone can build a decent infrastructure using other people's money

When visiting countries such as France British people are often struck by how much more efficient and modern their railway, health service or education systems seem compared with those to be found at home.

Much of this is due to the incompetence of British politicians but what is never made clear is how much of it is funded by money taken from Germany and the UK by the EU and then handed out to those nations who are net recipients of EU funding.

So next time you visit France or Ireland, take note of what your taxes have done for their services, to the detriment of our own
