EU Budget: UP!


Remember when David Cameron said that a measly 3% budget cut was a deal that wasgood for the UK? Well, today, it seems that it is much better for the EU. Rather than the promised 3% real terms cut it has turned into the complete opposite. This year it is increasing by over 6.9%.

A deal reached on a Saturday by the EU ‘Conciliation Committee’ means that the budget is actually increasing from €145 billion to €155 billion for 2016. In 2013 Dave told us proudly of his agreed lower budget “I battled off every attempt to change it in any way”, this weekend his government nodded through a €10 billion increase..

Quote of the Day

Nadine Dorries on Brexiteer fears

“I can feel a growing consensus among a number of MPs — faced with these Europhile kamakaze MPs, who really don’t care about their careers going up in flames, who want to overturn parliamentary tradition in order to stop Brexit — I think many people are now realizing that we would support this deal to get it over the line. Because every day here is a dangerous day at the moment. We may have to see that this is a deal, we will have to swallow our pride, swallow what we would prefer, and vote for it.”
