Putting things into perspective

Postby Glassfull » Sun Jan 13, 2019 12:39 pm

For us, little people, the sums quoted regarding our membership to the EU seems massive. It’s enormity is incompressible to most of us but it is really, just a drop in the ocean, compared to UK Plc’s overall budget.

Can you find it?

Or you can get all this info from the Office of National Stars website ( just before anyone jumps in with notions of exaggeration or bias)/

So here is the Office for Budget Responsibility chart. The EU budget contribution is so relatively small compared to the rest of the UK budget that it is lumped in with ' other'. And yet the British Public were told that stopping EU budget contributions would be so great we'd all be in clover. Fake Facts, Big Time.( and the downsides of lost trade, lost jobs, lost global influence way far beyond the miniscule EU budget contribution were glossed over) Why? Just look at and read about the super rich hedge fund folk who were and are betting against the UK.The UK economy goes down the swanny, they make £££££.And they don't care about the ordinary person being ruined.

Leaving the EU and not having to pay our annual contributions amounts to many £ billions. That money can make an enormous difference to other areas of the economy.

We are leaving.....get over it.
