    I wonder how many people who are talking about the £350m advert have actually looked into the fact that the EU Govt has never had it's accounts signed off, and what sort of sums we are talking about.

    There is no honesty. Remainers in real life are willing to have a bit more sense but don't be overwhelmed by the nonsense on here and facebook honestly. People have made a soundbite out of this 350mil claim

    why are you complaining about remainers, it was leave who made the £350m claim not them, so surely they had some evidence or was it just made up?

    Any argument based solely on the principle of "This website says..." should be stuck on its mum's fridge where it belongs.

    Very little of this information has been televised.

    Here's a documentary that will interest people concerned for the environment.

    Love the attempt to deflect the attention off the imaginary £350 million we are going to have.

    If the UK wants access to the single market then they will be forced to pay and get no say in the budget.

    Certain outlets have certainly focused attention on that and missed the much much larger sums that we should be talking about that we are "forced to pay" for, as someone reminded us!

    Sorry, I mean the larger sums of the EU budget generally, which we are not forced to pay, but we are forced to pay to get access to this market which puts tarrifs up making trade with other parts of the World (poorer countries in Africa included) more difficult ... not a "free market".

    Lol. You think the UK is going to give free market access to the 3rd world? NOT.

    Anyway, your initial claim is a myth.

    The EU has a 4.7% material error rate and has been signed off every year.

    It has a lower fraud rate than most Governments (including our own).

    If you want to say that the EU's material rate is too high then that is reasonable. However, to say it is not signed off is *******s.
