EU’s Taxpayer-Funded Referendum Intervention

This slick pro-Remain video offers “10 good reasons” to stay in the EU, featuring actors with English accents, some pricey graphics and a hefty dose of spin on top. It has had a massive 100,000 views on YouTube since it was published on May 3…

So who made the video? Was it the BSE campaign? Perhaps Downing Street? Nope, it was actually made in Brussels, by the Wilfred Martens Centre for European Studies. They are a think tank for the European People’s Party, both organisations have no UK representatives. And here’s the kicker: the Centre receives 100% of its funding from the European Parliament, some €4.2 million in 2014 alone. How much taxpayer cash did they spend on this high production value video? And how much did they spend on promotion for it to achieve 100,000 views in just ten days? This is the EU directly interfering in a British referendum using British voters’ money…

UPDATE: UKIP’s Gerard Batten comments:

“This is a group of taxpayer politicians – with no links to the UK, using our cash to tell us how to vote in the Referendum. Its a disgrace but will be counter productive, British people don’t like to be told what to do by collections of foreign technocrats.”
