The European Commission is to defy austerity by demanding an EU budget increase of seven per cent meaning extra contributions from taxpayers to Brussels.
From Bruno Waterfield:
The demand, amounting to £898 million in extra contributions, would mean new cuts in national spending and additional reductions in expenditure on public services in Britain.
If agreed at a Brussels summit in June, the Commission’s budget would mean that the annual tax burden for paying EU membership contributions would rise to £666 for every British household.
The EUnion is fast becoming a club we can’t afford to be member of. Can we leave now?
