‘Independent’ Brexit Scaremongers Funded By Brussels

This week a new report on “Preparing for Brexit” was released by the Agra Europe think tank, billed by the Observer as “independent London-based analysts” who “track EU and UK policy”. The findings were damning:

“A British exit from the European Union would have a devastating effect on the nation’s farmers, leaving only the most efficient 10% able to survive”

Good knocking copy for the remainers, though are its authors really “independent”?

Guess who was awarded a £36,000 EU contract “on the direction of the President”? Informa UK, the company which runs – that’s right – Agra Europe. Not only that, what was the “subject” of the contract? Agra Europe itself. What a coincidence that these “independent” analysts promoting Brexit scare stories are actually in the pay of Brussels…

This is how the EU plans to skew the referendum debate, quietly funding thousands of pro-EU “independent” voices. The list is long – Guido is watching…

Quote of the Day

Philip Hammond uses a trip to Berlin to mock the Foreign Secretary:

“A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such a way that everyone believes he has the biggest piece. Wise words with some applicability to the Brexit negotiations although I try to discourage talk of “cake” amongst my colleagues.”
