And guess what? It's nowhere to be found on any of the MSM sites.

Anyone would think there was an agenda.

Total annual contribution from The UK will be £12.5 billion.

n.b. For all you may hate Breitbart, at least it writes about what no other outlet will cover.

Surely most of that £12.5 billion will be from Customs Duty? Which is an EU tax that our government collects on their behalf anyway.

Except if you read the article correctly. It says that we have to pay an extra £384 million for no real benefit for us. Your thread title makes it seems like the EU is giving us that £384 million.

We don't have control over our spending in Europe and at a time when the public decided to give a majority to a Party committed to deficit reduction. It's clear what the EU is doing is NOT mandated.

Oh and for reference - that £384 million would help pay for thousands of student's to get that little bit more living loan.

'due an additional £384 million' - implies we are going to receive it.

I really don't have the energy to argue semantics. You win.

Annually we pay 14.3 billion euros or now around 15 billion and get back only 6.3 billion euros. We have not been getting a return on our investment. If this was a business, we would of pulled out long ago. Oh and ironically Germany gets loads back, how strange and people say Germany have no dis proportionate power influence
