Re: Last Gasp Attempt !
The EU is run for the benefit of a few, most notably France and Germany.
Neither of them are meeting the rules about fiscal deficit/surplus,which is plus or minus 3%.
Germany is running a surplus of 6%, whilst at the same time refusing to pay its' promised 2% to NATO.
France is running a deficit of more than 3%.
Germany has a surplus, yet only pays 0.5 % GNI in Foreign Aid, we pay 0.7% and have to borrow to pay it.
We pay child benefit to children who not live here. many countries do not.
EU Law states that if we do pay, we need only pay the same amount as the Child Benefit payable in their country of origin, whichever is the lessor amount.
So we only need to pay £20 a month for some, which choose to pay the full UK amount.
These things are due to two things.
The stupidity of our politicians in dealing with the EU .
Our own laws, not EU Law.
These are our choices, made by our Politicians on our behalf.
We cannot blame the EU.
Immigration, taking back control, is another joke.
There are 2.37 Million EU Workers in the UK.
There are 3.27 Non EU Foreign Workers in the UK.
We have total control over Non EU Workers coming here, leaving the EU will have no effect on these, we could the numbers drastically now, nut again we choose not to do so.
Anyone seeing a pattern here?
We are not going to be saving £350 million a week, that was a complete con.
Things will change when we leave, we are still in, so no great changes yet, we still have the Exports and the Tax Income.
Project Fear was also wrong, the sky has not fallen in immediately.
Things are however starting to change in Services, our biggest export.
Thompson Reuters are moving trades out of the UK to Dublin.
No job losses, the staff and computers are staying in London.
The trades however will be logged in Dublin.
They are a huge company, they do $300 Billion a day in Euro Trades.
The tax on this,we lose, Ireland gets.
Bloomberg, MarketAxess and Nex Group, other big traders, are moving to Amsterdam, again no job losses, but the Dutch get the tax, not the UK.
This is going to hurt until we get new trade deals in place and these take years.
In a nutshell, our bunch are making a complete pigs ear of it at the moment.
