The European Commission in June asked for €66 billion of additional funds from EU capitals


L.A.T.1961

Recommended Posts

Another bill avoided by a UK now outside the block. 🍒

"The Commission's request for extra funding includes a €50 billion aid package for Ukraine (consisting of €17 billion in grants and €33 billion of jointly backed loans), along with €19 billion to cover rising costs of paying off the EU's joint debt

Other increases include €15 billion more for migration and €10 billion in investments to retain Europe’s industrial edge. A top-up to EU staffers’ wages was also slipped in.

 

The savings after brexit for the UK treasury keep getting bigger.

Had to laugh at the headline figure and the bill if subtotals are added up.

Obviously the Commission is hoping EU states only read the advertised number and don't go away and do the math.

I make the bill $94 billion + staffers increase ? 

But its only money.

And the costs of Brexit to the UK are estimated at £100 billion per year, every year.

The great thing about being one of the big cheeses in the EU is that we had a say in these things.

Translation: Despite pellinore's obvious blind hatred of the UK's democratically mandated exit from the European Union, his hated post-Brexit UK simply refuses to go into recession.
