Food for Thought

When considering why Britain is broke, consider this:

"In the last period for which figures are available, the two weeks running to 22 June, the UK paid over £161,264,379.67 to the EU’s vaults. This was that fortnight’s subscription costs to the EU – over one hundred and sixty million pounds."

"If you went out of town for 24 hours to visit relatives, while you were away the EU membership fee cost £11,518,884.26 – eleven and a half million pounds."

"In the time it took to boil an egg, that was £23,997.68."

Food for thought indeed!
