My sister in law had a beautiful home in spain. I meant beautiful. swimming pool the lot. I thought they were happy over there and even envied them.
Suddenly this is true way before BREXIT they decided to sell up and come home. I was shocked so was my husband. they finally sold their house it took several years again this was way before brexit. they said it was expensive to live there, too many rules, too many people running one small town too many taxes. They finally left and settled back in the UK bought a lovely home and a small one to rent to make money.
they never regretted their decision. they love it in the UK and thank god they were here as her husband was very ill and nearly died. she told me yes you get some medical in spain but you have to pay for things too you dont pay in the uk. I know my friend had to pay for her murana, and other things when she worked there.
I was talking to them the other day as they really are staunch leavers and they told me dont believe the papers as all their friends are happyily leaving spain as they too have been trying for a long time to sell homes and they are selling them and moving back to the UK all of them are leavers.
I was surprised really was as i thought they had a lovely life there. I am not lying this is the truth as it was told me. as i say i was shocked.
I have a lot of family in Italy. Italy wants out.
Its so expensive in Italy. It never used to be, but it is. I have always thought its going to be like a house of cards. Once one goes the rest will follow. the only cats fat are the ones who seem to be in power.
With an annual budget of over €129bn, the EU is an economic power in its own right
So, where does the money go? €118.4bn of it is spent inside the EU - the rest goes on aid and development outside the community. These are the official definitions - and what they really mean.
• Administration Running the EU in each country
• The EU as a global partner International aid, activities outside the EU
• Citizenship, freedom, security and justice Asylum, education and culture
• Preservation and management of natural resources Common agricultural policy, environment, fishing
• Cohesion for growth and employment Helping poorer regions of Europe
• Competitiveness for growth and employment Economic growth grants to small business, science and research
€13.8bn is the total raised from the UK. This includes money raised in duties within the UK and passed on to the EU. The UK receives a 25% fee of €850.6m for this. Within that…
• €11.3bn is the UK’s national contribution, which is largely based on the size of our economy. It also includes other adjustments and €2.5bn from VAT
• -€3.6bn in rebates negotiated by Margaret Thatcher in 1984, called the ‘UK correction’ in the official data. This is paid for by other EU member states. Mostly France, which pays €965.9bn towards our rebate
France wants us out they will be a lot better off if we leave.
13.8bn we pay to be ruled by a central government who spends a huge amount alone on administration, overseas aid and so on and so forth.
we already pay for overseas aid ourselves.
